UCLA Bacteria Victims Likely Have Claims

On Wednesday, February 18, 2015, the LA Times reported that a bacteria superbug, carbapenem-resistant Enterobacteriaceae, was linked to two deaths and up to 179 other possible exposures.   Hospital bacteria infections are growing concerns and can lead to the loss of life, severe illness and permanent repugnant injuries, including disfigurements.  The California Court of Appeals recently upheld a verdict against a surgery center for an infection caused by pseudomonas aeruginosa bacteria.  These are not novel claims. Kristensen Weisberg, LLP is currently prosecuting a claim against a Southern California hospital for an infection of a breast cancer survivor who contracted actinomyces meyeri.  In most bacterial infection cases, there will be medical malpractice claims against the providers and product liability claims against the manufacturer of any medical product in question. If you believed you contracted a dangerous bacteria at a hospital, contact Kristensen Weisberg, LLP today for a free consultation.  Due to UCLA being a government based hospital there are likely statutory claim requirements with much shorter statute of limitations than normal cases.

Case Results

Obtained a record $16 million fine against Toyota Motor Corporation after discovering that the auto giant misled the US government when it issued a safety recall in Japan, but not the United States.
