We rely on most of our organs to stay alive. When an organ fails, a person can endure tremendous suffering. They may even lose their life.
Hopefully, this will never happen to you. However, if you have already experienced organ failure or lost a loved one to organ failure, you might be eligible to recover financial compensation. This is an option if the cause of organ failure was another party’s negligence.
At Kurzban, Kurzban, Tetzeli, & Pratt, our Maui organ failure attorneys have years of experience representing clients like you. Meet with us to discuss your case in greater detail.
Organ failure can occur for a variety of reasons. It can also take many forms. Examples of organ failure include (but are certainly not limited to) the following:
Internal bleeding – Internal bleeding may prevent an organ from receiving the blood it needs to function properly. An organ can shut down entirely if internal bleeding is not identified and addressed in a timely manner.
Pneumothorax – This is the technical term for the injury you might better know as “punctured lung.” Motor vehicle collisions and similar types of accidents can cause this injury.
Ruptured spleen – It is possible to live without a spleen. That said, if a spleen is ruptured beyond repair, it is vital that it be surgically removed fast. Victims of T-bone car accidents are particularly at risk of sustaining this injury.
Drug interactions – Although drugs can often improve an organ’s functioning, if a patient takes too high a dose of a drug or takes two or more drugs that negatively interact with one another, drugs may cause organ failure. Even OTC drugs, like Tylenol, can harm organs when taken in high doses.
Victims who experience organ failure may be left facing medical bills, lost wages, and numerous other challenges. They sometimes have the option of seeking compensation for these losses by filing claims to collect from the insurance of the negligent parties who harmed them.
A Maui organ failure attorney can help you identify who said negligent parties are if you have experienced organ failure and you believe you have grounds to take legal action. The party who caused your injury could be someone responsible for an accident occurring. It may also be a physician or other such medical professional. We will carefully review the details of your case and conduct a thorough investigation to determine who is to blame for your condition. We will also gather evidence proving you were harmed as a result of their negligence.
The struggles you might face if you have experienced organ failure can be substantial. Although no one can change what has already happened, if you suffered organ failure as a result of another party’s negligence, you may at least pursue compensation for your medical bills and other related losses.
