Our Michigan malpractice lawyers at Buckfire & Buckfire, P.C. handle medical error lawsuits against hospitals and doctors in cases involving brain aneurysms. These errors often result in significant permanent injuries to the patient and even death in some cases in which the condition is not timely diagnosed or treated. In those cases, we pursue a wrongful death lawsuit for the surviving family members.
An aneurysm is a swelling or ballooning of a vessel that can occur if the blood vessel is damaged or weakened. As blood pressure increases or time passes, the blood vessel can balloon outwards at the damaged or weakened spot. If pressure continues, the blood vessel can rupture, which can result in hemorrhaging (bleeding). If the hemorrhage is severe, stroke or death may result. An aneurysm can occur suddenly, or it can evolve over time.
Failure to Diagnose Aneurysms
Physicians are trained to suspect a possible aneurysm when the patient presents to them with the signs and symptoms of the condition. Timely diagnosis is important to prevent permanent damage or death, as often medication can be given that can prevent the aneurysm from rupturing.
In cases involving a failure to diagnose an aneurysm, it’s important to understand the symptoms that the patient was having at the time the patient saw the doctor or healthcare provider. Quite often, radiology studies like a CT Scan or MRI are utilized to diagnose the condition.
Our experienced medical malpractice legal team reviews the entire patient medical records and discusses the signs and symptoms with a board-certified physician to determine whether the condition was properly diagnosed and whether appropriate treatment was started in a timely manner.
