Septic shock is a complication that occurs when the body initiates a full-body inflammatory response to an infection.

Nursing homes, assisted living facilities, and hospitals are required to monitor the health of all elderly residents in their care. When there is inadequate staffing or training, it can result in elderly residents not being monitored carefully. A resident’s condition may deteriorate to the point of septic shock before the staff notice, causing serious suffering and even death.

If you or a loved one has been harmed due to septic shock, 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 and assisted living facility neglect and abuse. If you would like to discuss your case or want more information, please contact our offices for a confidential consultation.
