Stroke Misdiagnosis Claims

One stroke can lead to temporary and permanent injuries, including blindness, memory loss, partial paralysis, and even brain damage. Luckily, most strokes show warning signs before they occur. This means that many strokes can be avoided, or at least many of the aftereffects of a stroke can be avoided, through proper diagnosis and treatment by a medical professional.

Reach out to our legal team if a doctor failed to diagnose a potential stroke, or misdiagnosed a stroke, and you or your loved one suffered because of it. We are here to ensure you get the financial recovery you deserve for their mistakes.

We Pursue Compensation in All Stroke misdiagnosis claims

How can we help?

Misdiagnosis or failure to diagnose a stroke: Claims here involve a doctor’s failure to diagnose a potential stroke or a doctor’s diagnosis of a stroke as a different medical condition

Failure to treat a stroke: The issue in these claims is a doctor’s failure to provide proper and timely treatment, such as the failure to provide the drug known as “tissue plasminogen activator” (TPA) to a patient within three hours of the onset of the stroke
Regardless of where your claim falls, we are here to help. We will work with you and any necessary medical experts to build the strongest case possible and to seek maximum compensation for you.

No amount of money can undo the effects of a stroke. But money can help pay past medical bills and cover expenses for future medical care. Compensation can also reimburse you for the pain and suffering you felt due to improper treatment from your doctor. And, finally, an award of maximum compensation can also reimburse you for lost wages and the loss of potential earnings in the future, making it possible for you to support your loved ones, even if you cannot work.
