Fortunately, we live in a time where there have been advances in medicine particularly when it comes to treating signs and symptoms of a stroke. However, sometimes the signs and symptoms are not recognized.
If someone walks into an emergency room or walk-in clinic and the classic stroke symptoms like slurred speech, drooping of the face, loss of motor control, confusion or severe headache are missed that person may have been denied the opportunity for life saving drugs which would have treated those symptoms before they became catastrophic.
If this has happened to you or someone that you love, you may have a medical malpractice claim against the facility that failed to recognize those classic stroke symptoms. If you have questions or concerns regarding a similar incident, call our office any time and we'd be glad to help you.
Due to the nature of our small practice, we are unable to take every case, but we always strive to connect clients with the right attorney for them. We are happy to set up referrals to other attorneys who may be better suited to assist you.
