Serving Florida Stroke Victims Who Experienced Medical Malpractice
Strokes can be catastrophic medical events. Even if a stroke is not fatal, you may suffer life-altering consequences as a result. If a doctor fails to diagnose a stroke promptly and accurately, their negligence could change your life.
If your doctor failed to diagnose your stroke or treat your stroke, you can come to The Tinstman Law Firm, P.A., for help. My name is Eric M. Tinstman, and I am a medical malpractice attorney serving clients in Florida and throughout the U.S.
Medical Negligence And Stroke: What To Know
A stroke occurs when the blood supply blocks blood vessels or internal bleeding cuts off the supply of blood to the brain. The effects of a stroke can include:
- Loss of muscle control
- Memory problems
- Speech issues (aphasia)
- Vision loss
Doctors are human, and humans can make errors. However, if another doctor with a similar education would not have made the errors that your doctor did, then you may have a case for malpractice. Some of the most common examples of stroke-related diagnostic errors include:
- Failure to interpret a patient’s history
- Inadequate physical exams
- Failure to administer proper treatment
- Delay in treatment for a stroke
- Failure to request a computed radiotherapy (CRT) scan
- Misdiagnosis of stroke as a different condition
A doctor’s negligence can result in permanent physical harm to a stroke victim. You may have expensive damages related to hospital bills, ongoing medical treatment, medical devices and loss of earning potential.
