Sepsis is a bacterial infection that can originate and attack many parts of the body such as lungs, skin, intestines and urinary tract. Sepsis can even be fatal for your infant. There are incidents when this infection should have diagnosed and treated properly, and your newborn could have been prevented from harm. In such circumstances, you should file a lawsuit with help from a Michigan infant sepsis lawyer.

Sepsis Facts

Sepsis is a serious infection caused by bacteria. It can originate in various parts of the body to produce toxins that cause the body immune system to attacks own tissues and organs.  Sepsis can lead to some very serious complications that affect the lungs, brain, kidneys, hearing, and can even be fatal. Though sepsis can affect people of all ages, it is common in babies under the age of 3 months.

Sepsis Symptoms

When sepsis occurs, bacteria and toxins produced by them cause changes in the patient’s body temperature, blood pressure, heart rate and can even result in dysfunction of a body organ.  It is essential that the condition is timely diagnosed and treated by doctors and hospitals to prevent serious injury and harm to the baby.

If an infant suffers injuries due to sepsis that was not timely diagnosed and treated, it can give rise to a medical malpractice lawsuit.  Children with severe sepsis often develop conditions that can affect the social, academic and vocational upbringing of the infant. These often require services that amount to a significant expense over a child’s lifetime and are sought as damages in a medical malpractice lawsuit.
