Misdiagnosis of a Stroke

Over 50 years of experience helping stroke victims

Every moment counts if you have had a stroke, which is why prompt diagnosis and treatment are especially critical for stroke victims. If you or a loved one suffered from a stroke that was misdiagnosed or diagnosed late, you know how traumatic the consequences can be. The longer a stroke remains untreated, the longer blood flow to the brain is restricted, which leads to potentially catastrophic results.

We have the knowledge and experience to handle your case. Contact us online or call us at 1-440-252-0445 to schedule a free consultation with our medical malpractice lawyers if you have been injured due to a late diagnosis or misdiagnosis of a stroke.

Successful stroke treatment requires fast action

During a stroke, blood flow to the brain is limited. Due to the reduced amounts of oxygen cycling through the brain, strokes often result in severe and lasting complications. The longer the blood flow is restricted, the more serious and permanent the injuries. The injuries can occur and become permanent within minutes, which is why quick diagnosis and treatment are so important.

Doctors should know the warning signs of stroke and be able to quickly begin treatment. If this does not happen, the results can include:

  • Brain damage
  • Permanent disability
  • Death

If you or a loved one has suffered due to the late diagnosis of stroke, make sure the attorney you choose has the skills and resources to help you get the compensation you need. The Cleveland, Ohio, medical malpractice attorneys at Elk & Elk are here to help.
