Late Diagnosis of Stroke

Help when undiagnosed strokes cause serious or fatal injuries

If you or a loved one had a stroke that was misdiagnosed, you already know that the moments after a stroke are critical. A stroke restricts blood flow to the brain, leading to potentially devastating results for people who are not immediately diagnosed and treated.

Elk & Elk Co., Ltd., helps clients who have been harmed by negligent medical care obtain the compensation they need and deserve. With 50 years of experience, our attorneys have the knowledge and skills to handle all types of medical malpractice cases, including cases in which a health care professional provided a late stroke diagnosis.

With offices throughout Ohio, we provide responsive, convenient representation to clients statewide. Call 1-800-ELK-OHIO or contact us online for a free consultation with our experienced attorneys.

Misdiagnosed strokes have serious consequences

Strokes limit blood flow to the brain, which reduces the amount of oxygen cycling through the brain. Because of this, the complications from stroke are often severe and long-lasting. Injuries become more serious the longer that blood flow is restricted. Permanent injuries can occur within minutes, making immediate diagnosis so critical.

Doctors and other medical professionals are expected to know the symptoms of a stroke and to start treatment right away. If they fail to do so, a stroke patient may suffer injuries that include:

  • Brain damage
  • Permanent disability
  • Death

The medical malpractice attorneys at Elk & Elk Co., Ltd., have the knowledge and resources to help you obtain the compensation you need if you or a loved one has been harmed because a stroke was not diagnosed in time. Working with our health care staff, we will determine whether the harm you have suffered is medical malpractice. If so, we will provide you with strong, comprehensive representation throughout the legal process.
