WAS YOUR STROKE MISDIAGNOSED?

Florida Medical Malpractice Lawyers

A stroke is a very serious medical condition that requires immediate emergency treatment. It is a leading cause of death in our country and can leave victims that survive with long-term or permanent disabilities, affecting every aspect of their lives as well as their family’s lives. When a patient is taken to an emergency room and misdiagnosed while having a stroke, the results can be catastrophic and their quality of life is likely to never be the same again.

If you or someone you care about has been to the emergency room and was mistakenly sent home or treated for another illness, but were actually having a stroke, your interests would be best served by speaking with our Tampa medical malpractice lawyers about the details of your situation. Physicians are supposed to follow specific protocols when a stroke is suspected and failure to do so can be considered a form of medical malpractice.

The Dangerous Results of a Stroke Misdiagnosis

Young adults are some of the most frequent victims of stroke misdiagnosis, and medical professionals typically dismiss these cases thinking they are related to vertigo, migraines, alcohol intoxication or other conditions. The first few hours of a stroke are really critical and especially so during an acute stroke. Medical treatment must be delivered within three hours of the symptom onset of an acute stroke in order to reduce permanent disability. After 48-72 hours have passed, there are no major interventions that can be done to improve the outcome of a stroke.

Common symptoms of a stroke include:

  • Weakness or numbness in your extremities or face
  • Extreme headache
  • Vision changes or loss
  • Dizziness
  • Balance or coordination changes or difficulty
  • Slurred speech
  • Cognitive trouble
