The Tragedy Of Stroke Misdiagnosis
Strokes occur when an artery ruptures or a blockage develops in the bloodstream, interrupting the flow of oxygen to the brain and damaging brain tissue. Restoring oxygen at this time is critical. If doctors fail to diagnose stroke symptoms, however, they may not take the necessary steps to prevent severe brain injury.
At Lipton Law, our attorneys are committed to providing compassionate and caring representation for stroke victims and their families — and we’ve done so since 1964. Our experience with medical malpractice cases in Michigan gives you an advantage when you are fighting to recover compensation for your injuries and losses.
Stroke Diagnosis Mistakes
Common stroke diagnosis and treatment errors that can rise to the level of medical malpractice include:
- Failure to provide a complete medical examination
- Delay or mistakes in diagnostic testing
- Inadequate treatment administration
- Disregard of classic stroke signs
These types of mistakes and others cause stroke damage to become more severe with each passing minute. Delay in treatment can have expensive and life-changing repercussions. The most tragic thing about misdiagnosing a stroke is that if a stroke is caught early enough, amazing recoveries are possible.
