Sepsis occurs when an infection enters the bloodstream. Unless properly diagnosed or treated, the condition can quickly deteriorate. The very young and very old are more susceptible to sepsis, although people of any age can contract this horrific condition. Sepsis is caused when infections in one part of the body, such as the lungs, abdomen or skin, spread into other parts of the body. When people suffer infections after surgery, they are at risk of sepsis.
Sepsis is treated with intravenous fluids and antibiotics. When treated early, the majority of patients will survive. Unfortunately, when doctors delay diagnosis or delay treatment of a festering infection, the patient has a much poorer prognosis. Sepsis can lead to debilitating injuries and death.
Sepsis kills tens of thousands of people each year. Despite these tragedies, most people do not even know what sepsis is until they or a loved one has it. By this time, it is often too late. If you have lost a loved one to sepsis, a medical malpractice law firm can help you get answers and justice.

Where do I start… As a client of a malpractice case, I did not know what to expect. However, the support from Rosenberg, Minc, Falkoff & Wolff Law firm made me feel at ease. The dedication, compassion, and overwhelming hard work that Gary Silverstein put in was undeniably AMAZING. Seeing how hard and diligent Gary worked on my case made me realize that I had the best team on my side. The support from the entire legal team was unbelievable. There were continuous updates, follow-ups, most importantly assurance of any concerns I had before and during my trial. In fact, during the trial Gary showed a vast form of knowledge, strategic and responsive thinking, and most importantly wisdom. His dedication was unbelievable, and not one time did I not feel involved. I am truly appreciative for all that Rosenberg, Minc, Falkoff & Wolff Law have done, but mostly I am appreciative of the amazing staff they have. Lorraine and Sharon played a big part in my case, and I am truly thankful for their support and hard work. I am truly happy to have been a client of Rosenberg, Minc, Falkoff & Wolff Law.
