Nebraska Organ Failure Attorneys
Legal Representation for Victims of Organ Failure
Organ failure is defined as the failure of an essential system in the body, and multiple system organ failure is when more than one organ of the body ceases to function normally. Each organ of the body serves its own unique purpose and is important for how the overall human body functions; therefore, when one or more organs stop functioning well, it may be very difficult for a patient to recover from a critical illness.
Organ failure may occur for a number of different reasons, including low blood pressure and serious infections and injuries. Organ failure may also be caused by elements not in control of the patient, such as the negligent actions of the healthcare provider who is responsible for the treatment and diagnosing of the patient in their care.
Organ failure can very seriously alter the life of an individual, and in severe cases, may even cause death. Coping with this serious medical issue is incredibly difficult for a patient and his or her family, but the excellent news is you are not alone. If you or someone you love has suffered organ failure as the result of a negligent physician, or other healthcare professional, an Omaha catastrophic injury attorney at Cullan & Cullan LLC can discuss your legal rights and options with you.
Medical Negligence and Organ Failure
Medical patients should understand that the negligence of a medical professional may be the cause of organ failure, also known as multiple organ dysfunction syndrome. The acute failure of previously healthy internal organs is often fully reversible with a prompt and accurate diagnosis and appropriate treatment and care. As such, if an individual’s organ fails, or multiple organs cease to stop functioning well, the misdiagnosis of the actual cause of the organ failure by a physician or the failure of a physician to properly treat the organ failure may be cause for a Nebraska medical malpractice claim.
Benefits of Filing a Nebraska Medical Malpractice Claim
Organ failure is an extremely serious medical condition which may make recovery from a critical illness difficult and can permanently impact the health of the patient. Though speaking with a qualified attorney and filing a lawsuit against the negligent medical professionals who may have caused your organ failure may seem arduous and unnecessary while you are in recovery, filing a medical malpractice claim can actually be advantageous. Medical bills for any immediate or long-term treatment can add up quickly, and the costs of a hospital stay alone can be very expensive.
In the event a medical professional’s negligent actions caused your organ failure, a knowledgeable organ failure attorney can help you seek compensation from any parties deemed at fault. Compensation can certainly alleviate the added financial stress of your situation and allow you to focus on healing and recovery.
Obtaining compensation from any negligent parties responsible for your organ failure can be an important tool in the recovery process and can help you rebuild your life. A patient may be awarded damages for lost wages, pain and suffering, and medical bills.
