Pittsburgh Pulmonary Embolism Misdiagnosis Lawyer
Failure to Diagnose and Medical Malpractice
A pulmonary embolism is the result of a blood clot that travels from an artery to the brain, causing damage or, in the worst cases, death. If you or someone you love has suffered a pulmonary embolism or you have lost a loved one to a pulmonary embolism, it is important to have an experienced attorney review the facts of your case. At Hal Waldman & Associates in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, our experienced medical malpractice lawyers have extensive experience taking on complex cases involving pulmonary embolisms and blood clots.
Medical Background and Misdiagnosis
When patients suffer symptoms of a pulmonary embolism or blood clot, standards of care require that a doctor inquire whether the patient was on a long plane ride or is otherwise at risk. Failure to perform proper inquiries could result in delayed diagnosis or misdiagnosis. Our experienced legal team will pursue immediate action to determine whether doctor negligence or misdiagnosis was responsible for your injury or loss. Our lawyers work with medical experts competent in building a case against negligent doctors, hospitals or other professionals.
