Strokes work quickly. Every minute of delayed treatment is precious and potentially important to your recovery. Whether you go to the emergency room with stroke symptoms, visit your doctor with signs of a stroke, or suffer a stroke while already in the hospital, the results can be devastating if your stroke is misdiagnosed.

Prompt treatment of a stroke can prevent further damage and, in some cases, even reverse damage that has already been done. A New York doctor's failure to diagnose a stroke, or stroke misdiagnosis, allows the brain injury to continue unabated and may result in:
  • Brain damage
  • Seizure disorders
  • Paralysis
  • Motor problems
  • Language problems
  • Cognitive problems
  • Pain
  • Behavioral Problems
  • Depression
  • Death

These conditions may have been avoidable.

If your doctor failed to consider your medical history, conduct a comprehensive medical exam, consider your symptoms, conduct diagnostic tests, and recommend appropriate treatment, then your stroke may have been worse than it had to be and you may have suffered permanent physical consequences that you did not have to suffer.

For more information about your stroke misdiagnosis, your legal rights and your potential recovery, it is important to consult with an experienced New York medical malpractice attorney.
