Strokes can be caused by poor blood flow to the brain or bleeding. We receive a high number of stroke claims from patients and their families concerning the treatment they have received. In many cases, damage and injury cannot be avoided but occasionally due to a delay in diagnosis or treatment the outcome can be worse than it should have been.
The medicine concerning stroke can be complicated and it is important to have an understanding of the different ways that a stroke can occur in order to explore whether there has been medical negligence leading to a worse outcome.
A stroke can affect patients in a number of ways. It may result in the need for additional surgery, cause brain damage or, in some cases, it can even be fatal. A stroke often results in reduced mobility and independence leading to high care needs.
This can be a traumatic time for patients and their families. We are here to offer a supportive and understanding atmosphere in which you can discuss your concerns. We will investigate with expertise but also sensitivity, making the process as stress free as possible.
