Stroke Claims We Assist With:

Missing the signs of a stroke or delayed diagnosis

Every minute counts for a stroke victim. The early signs of a stroke are well documented, and doctors understand how a prompt diagnosis can afford patients a better outlook. With this in mind, it is a concern that not everyone receives a timely diagnosis, which may be because of negligence. This can result in the opportunity to successfully treat the condition is lost, extended recovery, serious injury, disability or worse.

If you or a loved one has suffered because of a lack of duty of care you may be entitled to claim compensation.

Failing to treat or delayed treatment

Time is never on the side of someone having a stroke. The value of timely diagnosis and intervention can't be underestimated. Although many patients receive suitable care, it is clear that some are avoidably harmed when treatment is either delayed or not given. This can result in the window of opportunity to successfully treat the condition is lost,  worsening health, extended recovery, disability or worse.

Misdiagnosing as another condition

When a doctor wrongly diagnoses a medical condition it can have serious consequences, especially if urgent treatment is necessary. For stroke victims time is of the essence, there is no room for error and even if the diagnosis is prompt it may not be enough. Sadly sometimes doctors get things wrong, such as misdiagnosis. This can mean the window of opportunity to successfully treat is lost, extended recovery, further treatment is required, permanent injury, disability or worse.

Failure to refer or delay in referring to a hospital

Doctors know the importance of prompt diagnosis and treatment, especially when faced with a medical emergency such as a stroke. Even when timely intervention is carried out it may not be enough. Yet some patients are avoidably harmed when doctors delay referring them to the hospital or don't refer them at all. This neglect can result in catastrophic injuries, disability or worse.

Unacceptable care

A stroke is a challenging and often life-threatening condition that requires specialist treatment. When a stroke patient is stabilised, the dedicated hospital team will monitor their condition and start rehabilitation. The road to recovery can be lengthy and sometimes despite the best intentions the outlook can be bleak. Sadly sometimes things go wrong and some patients receive unsatisfactory care. This can mean their condition is made worse, extensive treatment is required, disability or worse.
