Rhode Island Medical Malpractice | “Stroke Treatment Errors”

Please contact  East Providence Personal Injury Attorney, David Slepkow at 401-437-1100. He will  help you get the best settlement possible to compensate you for your injuries.

When you experience a severe and sudden medical emergency, such as a stroke, you should feel safe and secure once you are under the care of medical personnel at a hospital or clinic. However, negligent or careless medical errors can and do happen, and innocent patients often suffer as a result. If a member of the medical team makes a mistake that worsens your condition, you could have to spend more time in the hospital or accumulate more medical bills as a result.

If you feel that you or a loved one has been the victim of medical malpractice, it is important that you are as informed as possible about your available legal rights and options. However, because the legal system is so complicated, it is highly recommended that you speak with a knowledgeable attorney who is familiar with the laws in your area.

Potential Errors in Stroke Treatment

When a stroke happens, time is very important. Medical teams must work swiftly to diagnose and treat a stroke, or long-term damage can result. However, stroke treatment errors do happen. Unfortunately common mistakes include:

  • Failure to diagnose the stroke in a timely manner
  • Failure to prevent blood clots from formulating
  • Failure to properly care for the patient

If you have suffered any of these mistakes at the hands of a negligent medical professional, you should not have to pay for any of your injury-related expenses out of pocket. Fortunately, you may be eligible for compensation from the medical professional or facility responsible for your condition.
