Organ Failure Injuries

Serious accidents, surgical negligence and untreated infections can lead to organ damage or organ failure. Each organ provides a vital function. If the organ is damaged, the victim will likely suffer lifelong challenges or even death. Depending on the complication, individuals might be forced to live life with a pacemaker or be subjected to regular dialysis.

At Kurzban Kurzban Tetzeli and Pratt P.A., we understand the financial and emotional stress that a serious injury can place on the entire family. We will explain legal options and aggressively fight to recover the maximum compensation possible.

Headquartered in Coral Gables, the lawyers at Kurzban Kurzban Tetzeli and Pratt P.A. are prepared to represent clients throughout Florida and nationwide.

Whether caused by a high-impact accident, a fall from above or medical malpractice, organ failure can result in devastating conditions or even loss of life. Damage to different organs can result in significant life challenges and require different levels of surgery or treatment.

Damage to the sensory organs — eyes, ears, stomach, muscles, glands — and nerves in the brain or spinal cord can be difficult to treat. While medicine has made huge improvements in technique and technology, much of the body's communication remains a mystery. It is unfortunately still too common that medical professionals misdiagnose symptoms or recommend an incorrect course of treatment for a serious issue. Unnecessary pain, multiple surgeries or even death can result from medical negligence.

Heart Failure

If heart problems are accurately diagnosed in a timely fashion, individuals have a better chance of receiving the life-saving treatment they need. Numerous heart problems can lead to lifelong challenges, including:

  • Congestive heart failure
  • Congenital heart defects
  • Irregular heartbeat
  • Drug interactions, including from Darvocet and Avandia
  • Hypertension/high blood pressure
  • Heart aneurysms
  • Ischemic heart disease (IHD)

Failure to diagnose and treat a heart problem can lead to life-altering conditions or a devastating loss of life. We have successfully brought suit for damage done to a patient's heart by physicians not recognizing their own errors when ineffectively treating heart disease.
