Staph Infections

Staph infections, caused by different strains of staphylococcus bacteria, can be incredibly dangerous. In minor infections, the bacteria may attack the skin, resulting in inflammation, crusting of the skin, or scalded skin syndrome. If the staph infection continues to grow, it can prove to be fatal as the bacteria move internally. Although many of the events that lead to staph infections are unavoidable, there are sadly many instances of people being exposed to the bacteria due to medical negligence.

If you or your loved one has suffered from a staph infection due to medical negligence, a successful lawsuit against the responsible party may result in compensation for your suffering. The Des Moines medical malpractice attorneys of LaMarca Law Group, P.C., can help you to better understand your legal rights. Contact us today by calling (515) 705-0233.

Causes of Staph Infections

There are approximately 30 types of bacteria that cause Staph infections. Many people carry around the bacteria without adverse health effects, leaving them at risk for a serious infection in the event that their immune system becomes compromised by illness or the bacteria permeate the skin. Newborns, their mothers, and people with weakened immune symptoms are especially susceptible. The following are some causes of staph infections that may be attributable to medical negligence:

  • Improper surgery
  • Improper suturing
  • Insufficient dosages of medications

If you or your loved one’s staph infection was caused by medical negligence, it is important that you do not also bear the financial expense associated with recovery.
