With a Stroke, There Is No Room for Error
When it comes to treating a stroke, every second counts because every moment that passes, the risk of permanent injury or death increases. Doctors need to be able to quickly recognize when a patient is having or has had a stroke in order to take the necessary steps to save a life.
When carelessness, improper training or downright negligence lead to a medical mistake, you can rest assured knowing that the lawyers at Morris & Player PLLC will be on the case.
Proper Identification of a Stroke Is Key
Classic signs of a stroke as well as the lesser-known symptoms can include but are not limited to:
- Drooping face
- Difficulty understanding or using speech
- Weakness or numbness in arms and legs
- Loss of vision
- Severe headache
If a doctor misses any of these symptoms or mistakes them for another condition, a loved one’s brain or your own could become deprived of oxygen, leading to irreversible brain damage and some form of disability or death.
If a delay or misdiagnosis of a stroke resulted in injuries to you or a loved one, our attorneys will work with you to understand your situation, review the extent of your injuries and determine what level of compensation you should receive to adequately cover your medical expenses, including future care.
