Infection & Spinal Abscess Injury Lawyer Ann Arbor MI

Litigation Strategies for Injuries or Death Due to Infections and Spinal Abscess

Our Detroit law office understands the tragic effects infections and spinal abscess can have on the human body. We have seen first-hand the lasting medical and financial hardships people face after contracting a life-threatening infection or spinal abscess.

At the Ann Arbor metro Law Office of Andrew S. Muth, P.C., our attorneys can evaluate your case from every angle to help you recover the compensation you deserve for your injuries. We have handled cases involving a wide range of infections, including:

  • Pneumonias
  • Sepsis
  • Meningitis
  • Staph infections

We understand how these conditions may affect your long-term health. We also know that often the key in pursuing civil justice for your injuries is proving liability.

Staph is Everywhere

Unfortunately, staphylococcus (staph) bacteria are found naturally in most people's systems. If your immune system is compromised due to HIV or chemotherapy or you have a serious medical condition, you may be at great risk for infection.

Of course, the insidious nature of staph means you could develop other more serious conditions if the initial staph is not diagnosed or treated properly. We can obtain medical records, incident reports and other documentation supporting our claim of hospital or doctor negligence. Our goal as your attorney is for you to receive a fair settlement for your injuries. If a settlement is not in your best interest, we are always prepared to take your case to trial.

Spinal Abscesses

Another tragic condition often acquired as the result of infection is a spinal abscess. You could be infected with Methicillin-Resistant Staphylococcus Aureus, or MRSA, while at the hospital. If it gets into your bloodstream it can lodge in spaces around your spinal cord, creating abscesses and ultimately paralysis.

MRSA infection is drug-resistant. If suffered a misdiagnosis or improper treatment, you may face permanent spinal injury. The severity of your injury is directly related to the abscess' location on your spinal cord, causing either paraplegia or quadriplegia.
