If a Michigan hospital did not diagnose a stroke or brain bleed, can the patient file a lawsuit for medical malpractice?

Yes, a patient may be able to file a lawsuit for medical malpractice if a hospital did not diagnose a stroke or brain bleed in a timely manner. It is medically necessary to treat a stroke within three hours of the onset to prevent serious injury or harm, including death of the patient. Therefore, it is essential that the medical staff take all appropriate measures based upon the patient history and presentation of the patient to determine whether the patient is having a stroke.

A patient presenting with the symptoms of a stroke should be carefully evaluated and tested for the condition before being discharged home from the hospital. The Michigan medical malpractice lawyers at Buckfire & Buckfire, P.C. must prove that a proper and timely diagnosis would have resulted in a better medical outcome. That is, with a proper diagnosis, the patient could have received appropriate treatment and avoided additional injury.
