Legal Help for Medical Tubing Errors
Oftentimes, individuals who have suffered catastrophic medical emergencies or been in accidents may need to be hooked up to machines which are responsible for delivering things like medicine, food and oxygen to the individual. These machines are hooked up to tubes which go into the patient’s body, helping to keep them alive for the duration of their loss of consciousness or coma. Medical tubing is a relatively new technology which only appeared last century, and without it, many chronically unwell sick patients would die, making them an absolute necessity. However, just because they are essential in some cases doesn’t mean that they cannot cause harm, especially if there was an element of negligence in their installation, insertion or maintenance. If you or a loved one suffered severe health complications due to tubing errors, you have every right to file a legal claim to recover money damages and seek out closure, and we’re here to help with that.
