New York Medical Malpractice Attorneys, We Can Help When The Unimaginable Happens

Some risk factors for stroke include diabetes, high cholesterol, increasing age, race, being overweight or obese, smoking, and family history. Symptoms often depend on what part of the brain is damaged, but frequently are headaches, change in alertness, confusion, loss of memory, muscle weakness, problems with eyesight, difficulty walking, and trouble speaking.

Within the standard of care, there are many tests or studies that a doctor may need to order or perform to allow for the early diagnosis of a patient’s stroke, such as CT or MRI scan of the brain; angiogram of the head; check for abnormal blood pressure; check for problems with vision, movement, reflexes and speaking, and order other magnetic imaging to check for abnormal blood vessels in the brain.

The Jacob Fuchsberg Law Firm has successfully represented clients who have had medical malpractice claims pertaining to a failure to timely treat a stroke.

In a medical malpractice case based on diagnostic error, the patient must prove that a doctor in a similar specialty, under similar circumstances, would not have misdiagnosed the patient’s illness or condition. In other words: (1) the doctor did not include the correct diagnosis on the differential diagnosis list, and a reasonably skillful and competent doctor under similar circumstances would have; and/or (2) the doctor included the correct diagnosis on the differential diagnosis list, but failed to perform appropriate tests or seek opinions from specialists in order to investigate the particular diagnosis.

Our Clients’ Reviews


I cannot rate the firm any higher! we are extremely happy with the service we received from Brad, Chris and the team. We are northern Irish citizens and as such had no experience of the US justice system, Chris and Brad helped us navigate this and made sure we understood every step of the process and we were kept informed of what would happen with the case.

We also felt that Brad and Chris had a genuine interest in our story, what the implications for us as a family were and they were genuinely invested in how they could help our situation.

We were reassured by the manor in which Chris and Brad dealt with us and trusted that the advice we were given was always well balanced and in our best interests. We were extremely happy with the outcome the firm achieved for us and feel that we only got this outcome due to the hard work of Chris and Brad. I would not hesitate to recommend the firm to anyone who is considering a case and wants to feel as though they are really valued as a client.

Many thanks to the firm for all of their hard work on our behalf it truly is appreciated.
