Jacob Fuchsberg Law Firm: New York Medical Malpractice Attorneys

A stroke can be a life-changing event leading to permanent disability, memory problems, and other serious health complications. A stroke happens when blood flow to part of the brain stops. As a result, brain cells die, causing permanent damage. However, with a timely and correct diagnosis, stroke sufferers can be treated and rehabilitated.

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.

Compassionate, Experienced Lawyers — Here When You Need Us Most

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.

Difficult Cases. Extraordinary Results.

For the patients, young and old, who are not properly diagnosed and treated by health care providers, the outcome and the prospect for a return to normal daily living are minimal. If you or a loved one have suffered as a result of a cardiac condition, stroke misdiagnosis, or delayed diagnosis, please contact us immediately. Our office will obtain the necessary medical records and have an expert physician review the file free of charge to determine whether a doctor or other health care provider was negligent.
