Our Michigan medical malpractice lawyers represent victims of malpractice who suffer injuries and even death from deep vein thrombosis (DVT). In this video, our medical malpractice lawyer discusses how to file a medical malpractice lawsuit if you or someone you know suffers DVT.
Deep vein thrombosis is a condition in which a blood clot (thrombus) forms in one or more of the deep veins in your body, usually in your legs. Pysicians and hospitals should recognize the possibilty that a patient with high risk factors (recent surgery, smoking, obesity, sitting for prolonged periods, etc.) and the above complaints may have a DVT. When a patient is at risk for DVT and has complaints consistent with condition, the standard of care requires that the doctors and medical staff take appropriate measures to diagnose the condition and commence treatment if necessary. The failure to do these things can give rise to a medical malpractice lawsuit if the patient suffers a severe injury or dies as a result of an embolism going into the lungs.
To learn more about your legal rights after suffering DVT, you should contact our law firm at (800) 606-1717 so that we can thoroughly investigate the case. We will obtain all of the medical records and carefully evaluate whether the hospital and or doctor was negligent and whether this was a cause of your serious injuries and or family memebers' death. We will also have our team of medical and nursing experts provide us an opinion as to whether there is a case to be filed.
