Fighting Back Against Infection Acquired In Hospitals

Every year, thousands of patients suffer injury, and even death because of infections contracted from health care facilities. A survey performed in Pennsylvania in 2006 found that 19,154 patients suffered infections while in the care of hospitals and more than 2,000 patients died as a result. When it comes to a hospital infection, you need a medical malpractice attorney who will stand up for you no matter what. As zealous advocates of justice, the attorneys of John A. Caputo & Associates, P.C., are ready to take on your case.

Why You Need A Pennsylvania Attorney

Did you know that in 2007 a study released showed that infection was responsible for more deaths than HIV/AIDS or homicides in a single year? Infections in hospitals are preventable and patients who contract an infection should contact a skilled attorney immediately. Medical facilities and hospitals are well-equipped to handle medical malpractice cases and have their own team of attorneys. Therefore, it is in your best interests to contact our attorneys at John A. Caputo & Associates, P.C., as soon as possible.

The same 2007 study mentioned above also found that 85 percent of invasive infections like Methicillin-Resistant Staphylococcus Aureus, or MRSA, were associated with the medical treatment provided in hospitals and medical facilities. The Pennsylvania Health Care Cost Containment Council performed the study and included 168 hospitals.

If you contract an infection at a hospital or health care facility, seek legal aid immediately. With many years of experience and practice on your side, you may be able to find justice. We can quickly review your case and begin formulating a strategy to get you the reimbursement you deserve.
