Misdiagnosis of Stroke or TIA
Though it is virtually impossible to predict that a person will soon experience a stroke, there are indicators that medical professionals are trained to identify. One such indicator is a transient ischemic attack (TIA). In many cases, a TIA can indicate that a stroke is imminent. If diagnosed, a doctor should take immediate action to prevent or mitigate the damage a stroke will cause when it eventually occurs. If misdiagnosed, medical professionals will not have the opportunity to administer the correct treatments to their patients.
Pursue a Medical Malpractice Claim
Keeping all of this in mind, if your loved one was not diagnosed after he or she experienced a TIA, you should consider reaching out to an attorney. You may be eligible to pursue medical malpractice claims against your loved one’s physician. As overwhelming as filing a claim may seem, now may be your only opportunity to recover compensation for the pain and suffering that your loved one has experienced.
