You go to the doctor or the hospital to feel better. The last thing you expected was to contract an infection that would make you much worse. At Muth Law, we've helped many clients who have suffered pain or lost function due to infections they suffered because of medical negligence. When doctors, nurses, and hospitals aren't careful enough, or fail to diagnose and treat an infection early enough, serious harm results.
The attorneys at Muth Law understand how devastating infection can be. Certain types of infection lead to spinal abscesses, paraplegia, and quadriplegia, or death. We have handled cases involving a wide range of infections, including:
We understand how an infection or spinal abscess can affect your long-term health.

We're here to lift that worry off of your shoulders so you can focus on regaining your health.
Staphylococcus (staph) bacteria are found naturally in most people's bodies. However, if your immune system is compromised due to HIV or chemotherapy or you have a serious medical condition, you're at greater risk for infection. Prompt detection and treatment is important to prevent serious health issues from developing.
Staph infection is often caused by hospital or doctor negligence. The serious effects of infection and delayed treatment can make you physically and emotionally unable to pursue a claim at just the time you need the most help. Muth law is here to help.
Spinal abscess is one very serious outcome of infection. If you are infected with Methicillin-Resistant Staphylococcus Aureus, or MRSA, while at the hospital and it gets into your bloodstream, it can lodge in spaces around your spinal cord, creating abscesses and causing paralysis. MRSA infection is drug-resistant. If you were misdiagnosed or improperly treated, you could face permanent spinal injury. Depending on where the abscess is on your spinal cord, it can cause either paraplegia or quadriplegia.
