Houston Necrotizing Fasciitis Attorney

What is Necrotizing Fasciitis?

Necrotizing fasciitis is also known as a flesh-eating bacteria which spreads infection throughout the body, destroying skin, muscles, and underlying body tissue. When the disease starts to progress, aggressive surgery is necessary, often resulting in amputation and occasionally death.

This rare disease can be difficult to identify in the early stages, especially if medical professionals fail to properly evaluate the patient’s symptoms. When a doctor or other health care provider fails to adequately diagnose and treat necrotizing fasciitis, or when medical treatment directly causes the infection to exacerbate, you may be eligible to file a medical malpractice lawsuit with the help of an experienced personal injury attorney

At Haines Law, P.C., we have handled many medical claims through the Houston area and understand their complexities. With millions of dollars won on behalf of our clients, our Houston medical malpractice lawyer can evaluate your case, figure out your legal options, and develop a strong case in order to recover the damages you deserve.

How Can Necrotizing Fasciitis Lead to Medical Malpractice?

When necrotizing fasciitis is related to medical malpractice, it often occurs when a medical professional fails to make a timely diagnosis of the disease and/or to properly treat the disease. Since time is of the essence, a delay in surgery can be potentially fatal or result in amputation, organ removal surgery, staying months on end in the hospital, and permanent disability.

The following are the most common examples of medical malpractice related to necrotizing fasciitis:

  • Failure to thoroughly examine the medical history of the patient
  • Failure to recognize the symptoms of the disease
  • Failure to provide proper infection prevention and control
  • Failure to consider the risk factors related to the disease
  • Failure to properly interpret images from x-rays, MRIs, and CT scans
  • Failure to timely provide medication
  • Failure to timely provide surgery
