Failure to Diagnose Stroke
Miami Misdiagnosis Attorneys
When an unexpected health issue arises, you need to be able to rely on the emergency medical care professionals you turn to. This is especially true for stroke victims. When they exhibit symptoms of a stroke, timing is everything. The longer the diagnosis is delayed, the more severe or perhaps irreversible the damage. Unfortunately, not all medical care professionals or emergency room doctors properly diagnose stroke right away. Symptoms like severe headaches or vomiting may lead doctors to assume a diagnosis of the flu, but these symptoms are typically accompanied by telltale signs of stroke.
It is your doctor's duty to investigate and recognize telltale signs of stroke, such as:
- Weakness or loss of sensation in one side of the body
- Difficulty talking or understanding conversation
- Loss of vision or "dimming"
- Difficulty walking or balancing

How Do I Know If My Doctor Could Have Done More?
Every medical issue or medical treatment comes with inherent risks, and everyone's health problems are unique. As a result, there are some things that doctors simply cannot change. The difference between conventional risk and negligence is that one could have been prevented. Our lawyers have the medical knowledge and legal experience to bring to light issues of malpractice. We can investigate what procedures should have been followed, what staffing or training issues may have contributed to the problem, and how to connect that negligence to the pain or disability you struggle with today.
Obtaining Compensation for What You Have Suffered
We will pursue maximum compensation on your behalf - not to merely punish doctors who simply make mistakes - but to make sure you get what you need to recover to the fullest extent possible. This is your life, and you deserve the most professional and effective representation possible in your medical malpractice case.
