Stroke misdiagnosis cases can be very challenging because of is some instances the sudden nature of strokes.
With that said, a Maryland medical malpractice lawyer is looking at the entire record when these types of cases come up.
For example, if the patient did present to a hospital or doctor’s office what were the patient’s complaints?
Did the patient display facial drooping?
Was there evidence of slurred speech?
Was the patient displaying poor limb movement or little to no gripping ability?
Did the patient report a family history or strokes?
In addition to some of these things, was an MRI or CT scan done?
If one was done what where the results?
Was there a mistake in reading any of these tests?
These are just some of the issues which could be present in a possible stroke misdiagnosis case.
