If medical practitioners failed to treat a condition that resulted in amputation or the loss of function in a limb, or if surgeons amputated the wrong limb, you have a right to be compensated. For a free consultation, contact Cleveland's amputation injury lawyer Tom Robenalt today.
One of the biggest causes of amputation injuries that we see is undiagnosed and untreated cases of sepsis. According to the CDC, sepsis is the body’s response to an infection, often bacterial infections, and should be treated as a medical emergency. When left undiagnosed or untreated, sepsis can lead to organ failure, damaged tissue, amputation or death. People most vulnerable to sepsis include those over age 65 or under the age of 1, as well as those with weakened immune systems or chronic medical conditions.
Undiagnosed compartment syndrome, failure to treat ulcers or blisters and failure to treat necrotizing fasciitis are examples of situations where a failure to provide treatment can lead to amputations, death and injuries.
If doctors amputated the wrong limb or neglected to diagnose and treat a condition that resulted in the loss of an arm or a leg or permanent nerve damage, contact an amputation lawyer today. You may be entitled to compensation for medical bills, rehabilitation expenses, lost wages, pain and suffering, loss of consortium, and other damages, but Ohio law requires you to file a lawsuit within two years of the injury. Contacting an amputation injury lawyer sooner rather than later will enable him or her to review all of the evidence, hire expert witnesses, and build a strong case on your behalf.
