California Surgery Infection Lawyer

If you live in California and have suffered an infection after surgery, you may have a case. For years now it has been known that certain products used during or after surgery are associated with higher risks of developing a serious infection. Some companies continue to sell their product even after it has been tied to increase infection rates. As a result, thousands of people have developed infections that have caused incredible pain and suffering. For some, this entails multiple revision surgeries, hospital stays and extended medical treatment to fight the infections. If you or a loved one suffered an infection post surgery, a California surgical infection lawyer may be able to help.

Some of the most common types of surgeries leading to infections include:

With a population of 38 million people and hundreds of hospitals, there are millions of surgeries performed in California each year which results in many people getting a surgical infection. In California, in 2013 alone there were nearly 19,000 healthcare-associated infections (HAI) reported to the California Department of Public Health (CDPH) as it is required by law to report these events. Surgical site infections (SSI) totaled nearly 4,000. While that number has decreased over the years, that is still a large of number of surgeries in California hospitals that have resulted in infections especially with the technology we have today.  Cedars Sinai Medical Center in Los Angeles reported 115 surgical site infections in 2013. Stanford Hospital in Santa Clara reported 99 SSI. Ronald Reagan Hospital at the UCLA medical center reported 76.

If you had a surgery at any of the hospitals listed below that resulted in an infection, you need to contact us right away if you are considering filing a lawsuit. You should not be responsible for the medical bills associated with your infection and you should be compensated for the pain and suffering. A surgical site infection lawyer may be able to help you recover money for all that you have had to go through.
