A stroke is a medical emergency that requires immediate treatment in order to mitigate the consequences. This means that if a doctor fails to diagnose or respond promptly to the signs of a stroke, the ramifications can be deadly. Medical practitioners are well-trained to recognize symptoms and risk factors of strokes and are expected to follow standard protocol to treat them; failure to do so could be grounds for malpractice. If you were a victim of medical malpractice before, during, or after suffering a stroke, The Law Offices of Patrick L. Block, P.C. in Portland can help you seek justice.

Can a doctor be held liable?

Strokes can be caused by numerous medical conditions and risk factors, all of which doctors are trained to recognize. Typically, it is the result of a blood clot or hemorrhage that blocks the flow of blood to your brain. Conditions that create high risk of strokes include high blood pressure or cholesterol, diabetes, or cardiovascular disease. A medical practitioner should be able to provide resources and information for the treatment of these conditions in order to prevent this from occurring.

Grounds for malpractice in treating strokes include:

  • Failure to conduct proper tests to recognize possible risks of stroke
  • Errors during surgery that cause a stroke
  • Failure to provide necessary treatment for preventing strokes
  • Failure to diagnose a stroke
  • Failure to timely administer treatment to individual suffering a stroke
