Hospital-Acquired Infection and Disease Claims Lawyer
At the end of 2017, the Atlanta Journal-Constitution shared federal public health data that showed Georgia as ranking worst in the nation for life-threatening bloodstream infections acquired through medical care. Many of these hospital-acquired infections and diseases are extremely difficult to conquer, and for far too many patients, the results are fatal.
Data has also shown that hospital-acquired infections and diseases are almost always preventable. This means if you or a loved one contracted a hospital-acquired infection or disease while undergoing medical treatment, you may be eligible for compensation through a medical malpractice lawsuit. Henry County personal injury lawyer Darrell T. Farr can explain your options in a private consultation.

Common hospital-acquired infections include:
- C. Diff
- Surgical site infections
