The phrase “organ failure” sounds like something you’d typically hear during an episode of TV series Dr. House. But imagine that one day you can wake up in a hospital – having no clue what had happened to you – and hear a doctor say, “Mr./Mrs. [insert your surname here], I have bad news: you have suffered organ failure.”

That doesn’t seem like something you would want to be part of, as any internal organ damage can not only leave you temporarily or permanently injured – or even disabled – but also turn into a lifelong medical treatment that will be exhausting your budget and taking a toll on your physical, emotional and mental health (also, you may even require organ transplants, which is a very pricey procedure in Hawaii).

Organ failure symptoms: Get checked ASAP!

Today, our Hawaii organ failure attorney Jed Kurzban is going to list the most common symptoms of organ failure that should ring alarm bells: you may want to go through a medical checkup in case you notice any of the following (especially if you’ve recently been a victim of a car accident, truck accident, workplace injury, medical malpractice or other accidents).

Types of organ failure usually fall into several categories, which is why symptoms may vary depending on the dysfunctional organ. Our skilled personal injury lawyers in Hawaii at Kurzban Kurzban Tetzeli & Pratt P.A. have outlined the most common symptoms that can manifest themselves in liver, kidney, lung, heart or brain failure:

  • Fatigue
  • Yellowing of the skin
  • Fever
  • Excessive weakness
  • Nausea
  • Constant pain in upper abdomen (or other areas)
  • Loss of appetite
  • Sleepiness
  • Weakening of concentration power
  • Bleeding disorders
  • Infections
  • Swelling
  • Fluid retention
  • High blood pressure
  • Pain in chest
  • Anemia
  • Shortness of breath
  • Loss of memory
  • Increased heart rate

This is a non-exhaustive list of symptoms of organ failure. Don’t let any of these symptoms run their course and lead to catastrophic injury. Prevent organ failure by going through a medical evaluation, and speak to our organ failure attorneys in Hawaii to find out your best course of action to find those responsible for your injuries.

Medical malpractice and organ failure: the harsh reality

In many cases, medical malpractice, negligence, and errors on the part of doctors, physicians, nurses and other healthcare providers is what causes organ failure in unsuspecting Americans.

More often than not, organ failure can be prevented with diagnosis and the right treatment. However, negligence on the part of medical professionals, including their failure to diagnose and treat, causes serious harm to hundreds of thousands of Americans every year.

Make sure that you’re not one of the Americans who suffer catastrophic injuries as a result of medical error. Speak to our lawyers at Kurzban Kurzban Tetzeli & Pratt P.A. if you notice any of the above-mentioned organ failure symptoms, and we will help you find a qualified doctor to check your health.
