How Does An Infection Happen?
As a child, any time that you would get a cut, scrape, or bruise, it was likely that someone would tell you to clean up so that you did not get an infection. This sound advice still applies today, because most infections form in a cut or a surgical incision. Infections can have very detrimental health effects. Not only can infected sites be inflamed and painful on the surface, they also can lead to even more harmful illnesses. Even if a surgical incision does not become infected initially, a reopening of the incision can lead to a harmful and dangerous infection.
If you have suffered from a post-surgical infection in a procedure using AlloDerm, you may deserve compensation for your pain and medical expenses. Please contact the AlloDerm lawyers at Williams Kherkher by calling 800-761-3187 for more information about seeking justice.
Infections occur when a parasite or other organism enters into a person’s system through a cut or incision. Though many different organisms are present on and in our bodies, most can be neutralized by the body’s immune system. But if a person does not have the necessary cells to kill off the infection, it can run rampant throughout the body. Infections can often lead to the following harmful symptoms:
- Painful swelling
- Long-term fatigue
- Weak and aching muscles
- Internal system damage
Surgical incisions can be a primary site for infections to occur, especially if grafts or sutures fail. AlloDerm, a tissue matrix that is often used in surgical incision repairs, has a history of failure that can lead to dangerous infections. If infections are not treated quickly, they can do serious damage to a person’s health and wellbeing.
If you believe that AlloDerm failure led to your harmful infection, you may be able to take legal action. Please contact the AlloDerm failure lawyers at Williams Kherkher by calling 800-761-3187 for a free case evaluation.
