Failure to Diagnose Deep Vein Thrombosis and/or Pulmonary Embolism

Cleveland Medical Malpractice Lawyers

A pulmonary embolism occurs when an artery in the lungs is blocked by a blood clot, or thrombus, that has traveled through the bloodstream from another part of the body. Pulmonary embolisms are extremely dangerous. Nearly one-third of people with undiagnosed and untreated pulmonary embolisms do not survive. When pulmonary embolism or deep vein thrombosis is left untreated, patients can suffer severe complications, including tissue damage in the lungs and heart, as well as brain damage. With timely diagnosis and treatment, however, the survival rate is much higher.

If you or your loved one suffered harm as a result of a medical provider’s failure to diagnose a pulmonary embolism, contact the Ohio failure to diagnose lawyers at The Becker Law Firm for a free consultation. We can be reached at (440) 252-4399 or online.

What Are the Symptoms of Pulmonary Embolism?

The symptoms of pulmonary embolism or deep vein thrombosis include:

  • Persistent cough
  • Chest pain
  • Excessive sweating
  • Labored breathing
  • Dizziness
  • Leg pain

Doctors must recognize and treat these symptoms and must consider a patient’s medical history and risk factors when making a diagnosis. Patients with cancer or who are on bed rest, for instance, are at increased risk of deep vein thrombosis or pulmonary embolism. If a physician has misdiagnosed pulmonary embolism in you or a loved one, The Becker Law Firm can help you determine who was at fault and how negligent medical treatment contributed to injuries.
