Hospital Infection Lawyers in Detroit & Southfield Michigan

 

Infections that occur during hospital stays are all too prevalent in Michigan and across the country. The Center for Disease Control (CDC) estimates that roughly 1.7 million patients suffer from hospital-acquired infections each year, and another 100,000 infection-related deaths.

Hospital infections can cause severe pneumonia, meningitis, sepsis, urinary tract infections, and other illnesses. Other strains and varieties such as Methicillin Resistant Staph Aureus (MRSA) frequently make certain infections difficult to treat, resulting in additional pain, suffering, and risk to the patient’s health.

Treatment for Infections

Many hospital-acquired infections are preventable and, when treated quickly with the appropriate antibiotics, can be cured. But when a patient acquires an infection that goes undiagnosed and untreated for too long, sepsis and septic shock can set in and cause serious injury or death. Similarly, an infection of the spine can lead to a condition called bacterial meningitis which, if not quickly diagnosed and treated, can lead to permanent neurological impairments or death. It is critical that the necessary testing, diagnosis, care and treatment be provided to patients as soon as possible.

I will recommend you and your firm’s services to my friends and family.

Dan, I was very satisfied with the services you and Tad provided to me. The most important item for me was you both responded to my questions and inquiries quickly. I appreciated that aspect of your service.

Our attorney was tough, very professional, and knew his stuff!

Our case was very difficult and challenging and therefore was very time-consuming. Each step of the way, Matt explained what was going on and what I could expect, and he always kept in contact through emails or phone calls. Matt is sincere, kind, and compassionate – he has become more than just our attorney. He is more like family!

I wouldn’t recommend anyone else.

I worked closely with Matt Curtis on a medical malpractice case – he went to bat for me every step of the way. I wouldn’t recommend anyone else.

I will always appreciate your professional approach.

I believe that you were very professional. More important, you were patient with respect to my lack of experience in this situation. You took time to explain why one path was better than another. You listened carefully and offered sound advice and counsel.

You have really been fun to work with and are so down to earth.

I just wanted to say congratulations – I know you guys have worked very hard on my lawsuit. While there are attorneys who make the client feel like a cardboard box and afraid to say anything, it is easy to talk to you!

You have no idea how much you and your team have helped me.

My husband and I had taken the advice of someone else over yours – only to later regret it. You got the results we wanted in three days after we wasted 7 weeks with someone else. You have no idea how much you and your team have helped me, and…

I was and still am satisfied with your firm.

I was and still am satisfied with you and your firm. You believed in me and believed that I was wronged by [the defendant]. You listened to my input and suggestions. You understood what I was up against and justice was served. Thank you for working with me.

I will confidently recommend Sommers Schwartz.

You were on a short list of attorney’s I considered to represent me in this matter based on your standing in the legal community and I have no doubt that your reputation brought this matter to a resolution more expeditiously than a less highly regarded attorney would have been able to accomplish.
