Skilled Stroke Attorneys in Grand Rapids, Michigan
A stroke is a medical emergency. Roughly 800,000 people suffer a stroke every year. With timely and effective medical care, the patient’s life can be saved.
However, according to a study published in Neurology, about 9 percent of patients who present to the Emergency Department with stroke are initially mis-diagnosed.
If a doctor misses the signs of a stroke, and treatment is delayed, this may be medical malpractice. When this happens, the results are usually catastrophic. The patient may die or be forced to live the remainder of his or her life in a care home, sometimes unable to walk, talk or feed themselves.
