Many people call us about sepsis. This is an infection in the bloodstream. The symptoms can be high fever, rapid breathing, abnormal heart rate, decreased urine output and eventually shock.
Sepsis has to be diagnosed and treated with antibiotics before it gets worse. Sepsis and septic shock can lead to death and can be as a result of medical malpractice.
We have seen sepsis malpractice cases in Baltimore hospitals and it is tragic when it can be prevented.
If you suspect that a loved one has been injured or died as a result of sepsis, please call us toll free at 1-800-299-HURT. Or you can fill out the form on this page or on any page of the website.
