Failure To Diagnose Stroke

What Should I Do If I Believe I Am a Victim of Stroke Misdiagnosis?

If you begin to experience new stroke symptoms or your existing symptoms worsen, do not wait to seek emergency medical treatment. When you are experiencing a stroke, every minute counts. The sooner you see a doctor, the more they will be able to do for you. Get a second medical opinion if your doctor refuses to consider the possibility of stroke after you bring up your concerns. Once you discover you have been misdiagnosed, get in touch with a legal professional.

Maryland enforces time limits for medical malpractice lawsuits. You only have five years from the date of the initial failure to diagnose or three years from the date you discovered the misdiagnosis, whichever comes first. If a failure to diagnose a stroke results in death, you will have three years from the date of your loved one’s passing to pursue a wrongful death claim. You will be unable to recover any damages if you do not take legal action by the relevant deadline. 

A successful stroke misdiagnosis lawsuit can help you recover compensation for many types of losses, including:

  • Medical bills
  • Lost wages
  • Reductions in earning capacity
  • Physical pain and mental suffering
  • Loss of companionship
  • Loss of enjoyment of life
