Denver Cerebrovascular Accidents Lawyer

Providing Medical Malpractice Representation since 1998

Malpractice Attorney in Colorado Springs, COAnesthesia

When the blood supply to the brain is cut off, a cerebrovascular accident has occurred. These types of accidents, commonly referred to as strokes, are very dangerous and can lead to a number of serious injuries, many of which are long-term. In many cases, these accidents can be avoided or promptly fixed to prevent any serious damage from occurring. If you or a loved one has suffered from a serious injury resulting from a cerebrovascular accident during a medical procedure, you might be able to file suit against the people that hurt you. Please call a skilled Denver medical malpractice attorney today to see if you have a case.

There are two major types of strokes to be aware of. An Ischemic stroke occurs when an obstruction blocks or reduces blood flow into the brain. A hemorrhagic stroke is a result of a blood vessel in the brain bursting and, thus, spilling blood directly onto the brain. While anyone can fall victim to a stroke in medical settings, some people are at higher risk, including smokers, diabetics, heavy drinkers and sufferers of high blood pressure. If you or your loved one had any of these common risk factors, your Denver medical malpractice lawyer may be able to use this fact as additional evidence that the medical staff should have anticipated the possibility of a stroke and took action to prevent any damage if the accident occurred.

Did You Recieve Proper Medical Attention

When cerebrovascular accidents occur, medical experts should be prepared to provide prompt medical attention to assuage any damage. Cranial pressure must be immediately alleviated to reduce further brain damage in the victim. Proper medical attention can ensure the damage is minimized, that complications are minimized and that the victim can be rehabilitated. If the medical staff saw the warning signs, including weakness, reduction in reflexes, lost consciousness and other serious conditions, they should have promptly acted to prevent further damage to the victim. When the staff has negligently ignored these red flags, they may be held responsible. Your Denver medical malpractice attorney can ensure they are held accountable for their negligence.
