Failure To Diagnose Pulmonary Embolus

Simple surgical procedures, fractures and even long airline flights can sometimes give way to life-threatening medical emergencies. The occurrence of a pulmonary blockage of an artery or embolus, for example, can quickly kill an otherwise healthy patient. Pulmonary embolism (in the lungs) can originate with phlebitis, or blood clots in a leg or in the pelvic region. Deep venous thrombosis should be promptly diagnosed and treated aggressively to protect a post-surgical or any bedridden patient from disastrous consequences of a blood clot traveling to the lungs and/or to the brain.

If you were seriously injured or if a family member was killed because of health care providers' failure to diagnose a pulmonary embolus, seek qualified legal counsel to explore your options. Britcher Leone, LLC, offers no-obligation consultations to people injured as well as to surviving family members in wrongful death cases.
