Stroke

 

A stroke is the interruption of the blood supply to the brain, damaging the brain cells. Strokes can be caused by a blockage of a blood vessel to the brain (ischemic), the leakage of an artery into the brain (hemorrhagic), or the brief blockage of an artery (transient ischemic attack).

 

 

Medical Malpractice Resulting in Stroke

 

Medical malpractice relating to strokes can occur in a number of respects, including failure to diagnose and treat a stroke in a timely manner, medication errors causing a stroke, and surgical errors causing a stroke.

Neinstein's team of experienced medical malpractice lawyers carefully review the medical records and consult with qualified experts to determine whether a patient's serious injuries relating to a stroke were caused by medical negligence.
