Understanding Legionnaire’s disease treatment

Posted on November 23, 2014 1:07 pm under Legionnaires' Disease

Legionnaire’s disease is a potentially fatal respiratory condition caused by water systems where Legionella bacteria breed. This illness is contracted through breathing air contaminated with Legionella. An owner’s failure to clean and maintain water systems has sadly been among the causes of Legionnaires’ outbreaks documented across the country.

To prevent Legionnaire’s disease’s fatal outcomes, an individual with this condition should promptly be treated with antibiotics. Antibiotic treatment is largely dependent on the patient’s tolerance to the drug and the urgency of his condition. In severe cases, individuals with Legionnaire’s disease might be treated with multiple antibiotics.

It is the owner’s responsibility to keep their establishment safe from any disease-causing pathogens, such as Legionella, which may harm their visitors. At Habush Habush & Rottier S.C. ®, we offer Legionnaires’ patients in Milwaukee effective legal representation against negligent property owners that caused them harm.
