Unsanitary Conditions & Infection

Seeking Compensation After Unsanitary Medical Conditions

When you undergo a serious medical procedure like an invasive surgery, you are extremely vulnerable to infections during this time. It is crucial for your health care professionals to provide you with a sterile environment during the procedure and the recovery period. Without a clean environment, you risk suffering a life-threatening infection.

If you suffered due to unsanitary conditions leading to an infection during surgery or your stay at the hospital, we at Vincent J. DeSalvo, Attorney at Law, can help you seek compensation for your damages. Our Louisiana attorneys have spent more than 40 years pursuing the best possible compensation for our clients because we know what is at stake in these cases.

Common Causes Of Unsanitary Conditions

It can be easy to not recognize unsanitary conditions during your stay at a hospital. Unsanitary conditions may involve:

  • Unsterilized equipment
  • Reused surgical gloves, clothing and masks
  • Improper handling of hazardous materials
  • Hospital staff suffering from communicable disease
  • Cross-contamination

If you suspect that your illness is the result of any of the causes mentioned or due to any other case of unsanitary medical conditions, you need to act fast to seek compensation for your illness. We are prepared to put our decades of experience in negotiation and litigation to earn you a compensation that fairly reflects the full cost of your injuries, including lost income, additional medical costs and even legal fees.

Defend Yourself And Your Rights Against Hospitals

If a hospital is liable for your illness or infection, they will likely act quickly and aggressively to make things go away. They may try to convince you to not seek legal representation or offer you a settlement that is far less than what you deserve. You have the right to an attorney, and we are prepared to negotiate for your maximum compensation.
