Sepsis is a life-threatening illness caused by the body’s reaction to an infection.

When an elderly resident is suffering from sepsis, nursing home, assisted living facility, or hospital staff need to closely monitor the patient’s body for signs of blocked blood flow, especially to the extremities. Gangrene can occur if the staff fails to monitor for blocked blood flow in a patient. This failure may then result in permanent injury, amputation, or even death.

If you or a loved one has been harmed as a result of gangrene due to sepsis, the nursing home, assisted living facility, or hospital may be held accountable. Our attorneys have experience representing victims and families who have been harmed by nursing home, assisted living facility, and hospital neglect. If you would like to discuss your case or want more information, please contact our offices for a confidential consultation.
