Pulmonary Embolism

Failure To Diagnose Deep Vein Thrombosis And/Or Pulmonary Embolism


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.

    "David worked our case with professionalism and patience in an amazing way that ultimately led to a positive outcome."
    Right from the very beginning of our case, David Skall and his assistant Jean Witt were both extremely kind and compassionate to help us put closure on a wrongful death case involving my father at a care facility. They were quick to answer any questions that we had and they made sure we were kept in the loop of this entire process. even though we were in the middle of a pandemic, David and his team were able to adapt their technology and make it all work out for our benefit. I would strongly recommend them to anyone in need of legal help.
