Stroke Misdiagnosis

Pittsburgh Failure To Diagnose Stroke Lawyer For Medical Negligence Victims

An acute ischemic stroke is a medical emergency. Only a narrow window of time exists — often within three hours of the onset of the stroke — to effectively treat stroke victims.

When misdiagnosis or delayed diagnosis prevents doctors from treating a patient for stroke, the damage can be profound. Patients often find their lives changed forever, and families may face the loss of a loved one.

At the Pennsylvania law office of Caroselli, Beachler & Coleman, L.L.C., we hold doctors accountable for medical malpractice that affects stroke victims. When hospitals or doctors and other health care professionals act negligently, we take action by bringing lawsuits in our state's courts.

Many different types of medical negligence may affect the treatment of stroke:

  • Failure to effectively monitor nursing home residents for signs of stroke
  • Failure to identify clear signs of stroke, including prolonged fatigue, disorientation and one-sided weakness
  • Failure to conduct or properly review diagnostic tests, including blood tests, CT and MRI brain scans
  • Failure to diagnose intracranial hemorrhage
  • Failure to administer thrombolytic drugs to persons with acute ischemic stroke
