A Jacksonville sepsis lawyer from the Law Offices of Anidjar & Levine may be able to help you and your loved one hold a negligent caregiver or facility liable for their negligence. If your loved one contracted sepsis in a nursing home, the person or persons charged with their care may be held responsible, particularly if they acted negligently either in allowing conditions to persist, which enabled the illness to form, or in failing to respond to the illness quickly and effectively.
The Jacksonville sepsis lawyers at the Law Offices of Anidjar & Levine may help you and your loved one take action against the negligent caregiver who allowed them to become ill. We may have a valid claim for nursing home neglect against the facility, too. We may investigate and determine what your options are and what you can expect from filing a claim.

Learn What Sepsis Is and How It Occurs
The Mayo Clinic describes sepsis as a dangerous and potentially deadly medical condition that occurs when harmful microorganisms multiply in the bloodstream. It can occur for multiple reasons, but regardless of how it happens, it must be addressed right away, or the consequences can be fatal.
Elderly people in nursing homes are particularly susceptible to sepsis because of their advanced age—a large risk factor—and their proximity to others in nursing homes or facilities.
Because nursing home residents have an elevated risk of contracting sepsis, and because the disease can be particularly harmful or deadly for them due to their advanced age and frail condition, caregivers must take every step possible to protect them from the disease.
If your loved one contracted sepsis in a nursing home and became sick or died, it may be the fault of one or more caregivers. We may be able to hold them liable for their negligent behaviors along with, potentially, the facility itself and its director.
