Failure to Diagnose Aneurysm Malpractice
Failures in the diagnosis of aneurysms have resulted directly in thousands of cases of catastrophic damage to the brain, internal bleeding, paralysis, coma, and death.
As a medical event which can be prevented often, an aneurysm can be treated or rectified if it is diagnosed in a timely matter.
When the conduct of staff in an emergency room, or healthcare professionals results in any neglect to diagnose aneurysm, a personal injury medical malpractice claim can be filed by those who sustained injuries.
You can benefit from a medical malpractice lawyer who represents families and patients who have sustained injuries due to a failure of physicians to diagnose an aneurysm.
An aneurysm can be a fatal problem, which develops as a dissection or a bulge in a blood vessel.
A bulge is a weak spot which balloons outward in the blood vessel; it is exactly what it sounds like.
If not treated and diagnosed, this kind of aneurysm in the blood vessel can burst.
An aneurysm that is dissecting is different, but dangerous just the same.
Composed of tissue layers are blood vessels which are linked together. An aneurysm dissection can make a tear in the blood vessel in the inside layer.
Making the other layers dissect or separate, the blood goes through the tear.
The most usual places for the occurrence of an aneurysm are in the following:
The largest artery in the human body, the aorta, transports blood from the heart to various blood vessels.Neglecting to Diagnose Aneurysm can be Hazardous
Signs and symptoms to suggest aneurysm are definite, and health professionals are trained to diagnose and detect these indications, which entail:
Aortic aneurysm can include vomiting, sweating, nausea, dizziness, back pain, serious chest pain, and heartbeat.
Brain aneurysm commonly includes pupil dilation, vomiting, nausea, major headache, light sensitivity, and various symptoms.
Neglecting to diagnose an aneurysm may occur when a physician or other health professional doesn’t identify or take note of symptoms of aneurysm in a patient; he or she may not image or test to explore further the condition of a patient, or may discharge a patient from the emergency room or medical facility prematurely.
In consideration involving malpractice or medical negligence in any case, it is the plaintiff’s requirement to establish a breach of the medical staff member’s or physician’s duty of care.
This means, plainly put, that a case can rest on the ability of your lawyer to confirm proof that the hospital or physician didn’t act as most other health professionals in a similar position.
Attorneys rely on the testimony of physicians, surgeons, and other health professionals, to establish a breach of your physician’s duty of care, with decades of experience in their respective fields, who can explain where a physician neglected to fulfill his or her duty.
Any failure to diagnose a health condition can be labeled as negligence, even if the physician made a simple error in judgment or possessed no ill intentions.
