Warwick & Newport, Rhode Island, Attorney For C-Diff Infection From Antibiotic Overuse
Bacterial Infection Lawyer Serving Rhode Island, Massachusetts & New York
Antibiotics can be an extremely effective treatment against various infections and viruses. There are certain circumstances, however, where antibiotics can be overused and can eventually do more harm than good. A great deal of care must be taken to ensure that patients are given the right amount of a drug and that treatment is stopped before it begins to compromise the patient’s health.
When antibiotics are overused, it can lead to an infection by a bacteria known as clostridium difficile, also referred to as C-difficile or C-diff. These infections can lead to a broad range of health complications and, in extreme cases, can be fatal. Doctors should be aware of the risks associated with excessive antibiotic use and may be held accountable if patients acquire a C-diff infection.
At the law firm of Vincent D. Morgera, Ltd., I offer my clients more than 30 years of experience in the practice of med mal law. C-diff infections can arise in a number of different ways, and it is important for you to have a Warwick lawyer for C-diff infection from antibiotic overuse who can present a compelling case to prove medical negligence.
Understanding C-Diff Infections
C-diff is a naturally occurring bacteria that frequently develops in the intestines when the body is overexposed to antibiotics but can develop under other conditions, most commonly in settings such as hospitals and nursing homes. When the concentration of C-diff reaches a high enough level, it can lead to an infection that results in a variety of symptoms that may include diarrhea and inflammation of the colon. In some cases, the damage to the colon can lead to other more serious and sometimes life-threatening conditions.
I work closely with a group of respected medical specialists in these cases. Their expertise helps to build and present the most compelling possible case on your behalf. My experience with complex medical malpractice claims has given me insight into the type of care you will need in the short and long term, and I diligently seek a settlement or jury verdict that fully accommodates your needs.
