US MRSA Lawsuits
Started by Randy J Posted: December 7, 2005 at 16:45
I'm 58 and acquired deep wound MRSA following low back fusion with steel support, in florida. I've looked all over the internet and can not find any info on successful or unsuccessful lawsuits or settlements on MRSA contracting/treatments.

Would you or families post your/their legal experience on this subject.
Thanks - Still on Vanco via IV after 8 weeks..
Randy

USE GOOGLE.
YOUR OBSEESSION WITH MONEY IS DISTURBING.

VANCO WONT WORK.
THE BACTERIA ARE RESISTANT TO IT.
U CAN TRY ASAP COLLOIDAL SILVER OR OTHER MEANS.

Obsesion with money ? Given the factthe medical community is doing little to nothing to prevent MRSA they should have be sued. My hospital stay was extented by 8 days. Followed by 2 more 5 day addmissions and a 2nd surgery with 8 more days in the hospital. I have lost 5 months of work and 20 months later still have MRSA. I am now facing a third surgery. How someone inquiring about case history is an obbsesion with money is behond me. Vanco can work, not on everyone, there are very few stains that have built resistance to vanco. "Helper" you do not have a clue ! The only way to affect change is to hit them where it hurts, and medicine is big business and only understands $$$. The same people that help spread it make big $$. In my case medical cost above the intial surgery have now cost my insurance co an additional $173K. Most which went to the hospital that I was infected at. That is more than I will pay in premiums for the next 15 years. That means everyone that is insured by my insurance co is paying for there mistake while they(hospitals) get fat. "Helper" If you can not see that they(medical field)need to be punished than it's time for you to go away !

But you should be focusing on treating yourself instead of chasing greenbacks.

Americans love blaming everyone else for their own mistakes.

The healthcare systen you have is the one you elected through your corrupt congressmen who are in the pockets of big pharma lock,stock and barrel.

Americans are rich anyway and if you really are loosing a few dollers just cut on the excessive lifestyle you all lead.
I mean instead of having roast beef every day have it every 2nd day or even at the weekends.Cut down on your fancy air conditioning and your gas guzzler cars with your swimming pools

And buying fancy designer gear every week.

AMERICANS PAY PEANUTS FOR GAS AND YET STILL WHINGE AT THE SLIGHTEST HARDSHIP.

YOU HAVE EEN LIVING IN SELF INDULGENT LUXUERY FOR TOO LONG.

"vanco works"... "eight months later i still have mrsa" <<<----you are totally clueless.

And also YOU have failed to to do any research for yourself.You only have your owen lazy self to blame.

Do you really think lawyers are going to cure you of mrsa?

I am obsessing about money. My 22 year old son has been left crippled by MRSA contracted in hospital over two years ago. His surgeon cannot say whether he will ever be able to bend his leg normally again. He is unable to work and there is no dispute that his disability occurred at a time when he was in the care of the NHS. I have given up a well paid full time job in favour of a local part time job in order to care for him. We will soon be in a financially untenable position. Helper, what do you suggest?

If you really care about your son you should cure him using the information posted here.

I saw at leat a dozen useful cures.

What ARE you doing?

Just posting for the sake of posting to get sympathy.

i DONT KNOW HOW YOU LIVE WITH OURSELF.
YOU HAVE HAD 2 YEARS TO SOLVE THE PROBLEM YOURSELF AND YOU HAVE FAILED TO RESEARCH IT AND IMPLEMENT A SOLUTION.

Maybe secretly deep down by keeping your son in a dependent mode makes you feel wanted and useful.

He is cured of MRSA. I am not seeking a cure for MRSA. IV teicoplanin eradicated MRSA in August 2003. The damage MRSA has left in its wake cannot be cured. It has left him disabled and unable to work. The cure is money; money from those responsible. Once those responsible for the damage begin to have to pay out for that damage, they will quickly find a way to reduce the incidence of MRSA in hospital. While there is no accountability for the damage caused, there is no incentive to implement any improvement or even change.

Helper, you can not be serious. The price of gas, swimming pools and all americans are rich. As I first thought when I read your reponse to the question, you are whacked in the head. You need to go away !
Ruth save your efforts on this one. He/she may have MRSA but I think he has a new strain. It is eating his brain !
Or maybe it's mad cow. Seems to be obsessed with beef !

It is crystal clear that you Helper do not have MRSA. We are worried by trying to make the hospitals and doctors take responsibility. More people die from this than AIDS, Cancer, AND car accidents combined. Can you put a price on that? A life. priceless. That is what we are trying to live with a deadly disease. I have had no luck with a lawyer they say MRSA is a hard thing to prove. If you find a lawyer willing to take your case I would love to know how to get in touch with him. Eating establishments have to post ratings and hospitals do not have to tell us their rate of MRSA> This not about money, but it seems to get peoples attention money is the best way. We need research. Zyvox is the only drug after Vanco to treat MRSA. I am on it and when it quits working I guess I die. Lots of people in the same position.

I was completely unaware of the complete disruption and devastation having a suddenly disabled family member entails, not to say the overwhelming expense. I am glad my son is still alive and I do now have a different perspective on life.

I AM DISGUSTED AT THE ALLEGATIONS ABOUT BEING AFTER MONEY. LET ME TELL YOU PEOPLE SOMETHING. I AM IN THE MIDDLE OF A LAWSUIT FOR THE DEATH OF MY GIRLS. I TOO DID NOT AT FIRST WANT TO PURSUE IT BECAUSE OF THE ATTITUDE OF PEOPLE LIKE YOU. MY GOAL IS TO MAKE THEM PAY ATTENTION TO MRSA. I DON'T CARE IF I GET A DIME IT WILL NOT BRING MY GIRLS BACK. CURE, YEA THIS IS FUNNY, MAYBE IT WILL CURE SOME PEOPLE BUT WHO WILL SPEAK FOR MY GIRLS AND OTHER PEOPLE WHO HAVE DIED BECAUSE WE KEEP OUR MOUTHS SHUT AND THE MEDICAL FIELD JUST BRUSHES IT UNDER THE RUG. MY LIFE HAS BEEN TURNED UPSIDE DOWN AND YES I AM ANGRY BECAUSE I SHOULD HAVE HEALTHY TODDLERS NOW AND INSTEAD I PUT THEM IN THE GROUND. I LOST MY HOME AND MYSANITY AND NOW I AM SO NERVOUS I CANNOT STAND FOR MY OTHER CHILDREN TO BE OUT OF MY SITE. I LOSE MY DAUGHTERS AND THE MEDICAL FIELD GETS TO JUST GO ON. ONE OF THE DOCTORS EVEN SAID TO ME WELL, STAPH HAPPENS EVERYDAY. HOW COLD CAN YOU GET. THE NURSES IN THIS NICU NEVER WORE GLOVES, MASKS, OR GOWNS. THE SIMPLEST THING COULD HAVE PREVENTED THIS FROM EVER HAPPENING. YOU PEOPLE NEED TO WAKE UP AND REALIZE WE NEED TO GET THEIR ATTENTION OR OTHERS WILL DIE BECAUSE THEY ARE TOO AFRAID TO SPEAK UP ABOUT MRSA.

I investigated the possibility of a lawsuit against the doctor who was responsible for my MRSA. Several lawyers replied with the same information: Unless you can get a doctor who was involved in the case to state that the MRSA was caused by the doctor who was responsible, you will not be able to win a lawsuit in Minnesota.

I am now investigating the doctor issue. If I have success, I will let you all know.

Good wishes to you all and I am sorry for your losses.

Strike three. Just in time for the new year, I got the registered letter from yet antoher law firm regretfully decline to represent me in legal action againist the Hospital. Now 20 months into the nightmare that MRSA has brought to me my kids and wife the Doc's are now looking into scar carsanoma. A rare form of cancer that is or can be caused by repeated damage to tissue. My surgical wound has been open for the 20 months. I continue to test postive in the wound for MRSA. I have completed 9 coarses of Zyvox and 1 round of IV vanco which nearly killed me. And they won't take the case because they don't see a high enough profit in getting 40% of damages. Please if you or someone you know has or had MRSA make as much noise as you can. I am hopefull everyday that sooner than later some Doc some where will solve this HELL we call MRSA. The law says I only have 36 months from the surgery to file legal action. Funny, I am 2 thirds into the limit still not healed and that's not enough to bring a case forward. Some dumby drinking hot coffee and driving gets in front of a judge and wins millions. As an American that shames me. I knew our court system has issues but this is crazy. Good luck to all and remember if you make enough noise someone will hear us !

so i got mrsa on my leg from someone i visited in the hospital who had it on his face not to mention i lived with him....
that hosp. let me lay down with him and said nothing about it....he even had a roomate. we knew nothing about mrsa at all back then. now its 7 months laters and i get it every 3-4 months. finally was hospitalized this last time. seems like i feel iller now when i get it and it always is on my right leg of butt. when it heals im fine. so am i eventually just going to die from this?? i hear of people dying but is it bc they have something else too or is it bc of the mrsa bc i was healthy before this so now am i just fucked forever?? i feel that way. also helper...you made my stomach turn with your ignorance. really its disgusting how some peoples minds work.

My legal experience is once I was diagnosed no one will discuss where I might have contracted it.
