Did A Doctor Misdiagnose Or Fail To Treat An Ischemic Stroke?

Strokes come in two different kinds. The first is a hemorrhagic stroke, and it occurs when a blood vessel inside the brain is injured and bleeds. The second and most common kind of stroke is an ischemic stroke. It is caused when an artery to the brain is blocked by a blood clot or other obstruction.

If the stroke victim receives prompt treatment, the effects of an ischemic stroke can often be reversed. However, many hospital staff members fail to recognize the signs and symptoms of a stroke or provide the right treatment in time, resulting in permanent brain injury or wrongful death. In such cases, the victim and his or her family may have a medical malpractice case.
