Baltimore, MD -- (SBWIRE) -- 10/06/2015 -- When protective measures are not properly put in place to prevent venous thromboembolism, the health condition can be deadly. Individuals who have experienced surgery, major trauma or immobilization are at risk for the blood clot disorder, which can be avoided with preventative anticoagulant therapy. The experienced team of lawyers at Gershon, Willoughby, Getz & Smith, LLC are currently in the midst of handling several cases concerning venous thromboembolism, of which the medical professionals failed to perform prophylaxis – the medical definition that stands for the preventative measures conducted to prevent disease. As a result of the medical malpractice, the victims lost their lives. The law firm is bringing two of the cases to trial, with one occurring in October and the other set to take place in January.
Venous thromboembolism is when a formation of blood clots happens in the vein, and then breaks apart. The clots then travel to the area of the lungs, blocking the blood supply, resulting in fatal outcomes. The cause of the condition is often linked to hospitals, which is why the attorneys of Gershon, Willoughby, Getz & Smith, LLC are working hard to bring the issue to light. The law firm in Baltimore has the expertise to handle any cerebral palsy claim, but is also experienced in handling medical malpractice cases such as venous thromboembolism.
The lawyers use a strategic and aggressive approach to defend the rights of their clients in hopes of bringing the medical malpractice to justice. Through the trials, they hope to achieve a settlement for the survivors of the victims that will provide them with the financial support they need.
