Necrotizing Fasciitis

Necrotizing Fasciitis Attorneys and Lawsuits

Because people with severe pressure sores literally have an open wound on their body, they are at a higher risk for contracting the infection causing bacteria that can cause necrotizing fasciitis — commonly referred to as the ‘flesh eating virus’. Rather than ‘eating’ the flesh, necrotizing fasciitis actually causes the surrounding tissue to die.

The flesh eating appearance

The early stages of necrotizing fasciitis are characterized by severe pain and swelling in the area of the infection frequently accompanied by diarrhea and vomiting without much change in appearance of the wound. However, as the bacteria develops larger areas of the may get involved leaving large patches of decaying skin.

Client Reviews

In addition, Jonathan was understanding and patient pertaining to any of my questions or concerns. I was very happy with the end result and I highly recommend Jonathan Rosenfeld.
    ★★★★★
  • Extremely impressed with this law firm. They took control of a bad motorcycle crash that left my uncle seriously injured. Without any guarantee of a financial recovery, they went out and hired accident investigators and engineers to help prove how the accident happened. I am grateful that they worked on a contingency fee basis as there was no way we could have paid for these services on our own.
    ★★★★★
