treat them; failure to do so could be grounds for malpractice. If you

a stroke, The Law Offices of Patrick L. Block, P.C. in Portland can help
you seek justice.

Can a doctor be held liable for the consequences of your stroke?
Strokes can be caused by numerous medical conditions and risk factors,
all of which doctors are trained to recognize. Typically, a stroke is
the result of a blood clot or hemorrhage that blocks the flow of blood to your
brain. Conditions that create high risk of strokes include high blood pressure
or cholesterol, diabetes, or cardiovascular disease. A medical practitioner
should be able to provide resources and information for the treatment
of these conditions in order to prevent strokes from occurring.
Grounds for malpractice in treating strokes include:
- Failure to conduct proper tests to recognize possible risks of stroke
- Errors during surgery that cause a stroke
- Failure to provide necessary treatment for preventing strokes
Failure to diagnose a stroke
- Failure to timely administer treatment to individual suffering a stroke
