Our First Class Team Can Handle Your Stroke Misdiagnosis Case
Doctors have a duty to take appropriate steps to diagnose and treat patients with a stroke. Examples of medical negligence in stroke cases may include an emergency room error and other forms of doctor and hospital negligence.
In many cases, family members of a stroke victim call 911 or bring their loved to the emergency room directly. Evidence of a stroke or at-risk patient may include a drooping face, slurred speech, numbness on one side of the body and other warning signs. A failure by hospital staff to timely obtain a CT scan to confirm a stroke, timely respond to evidence of a stroke from a CT scan or other forms of delayed or inadequate treatment may form the basis of a medical malpractice claim.
