Stroke Misdiagnosis

Rely on Our Trial-Tested Maryland Medical Malpractice Attorneys

According to the American Heart Association, strokes are the fifth leading cause of death in the United States. A stroke occurs when a blood vessel ruptures or is blocked by a clot, effectively preventing oxygen from reaching a patient’s brain cells. Early detection and aggressive treatment options can protect a patient from experiencing the full impact of a stroke. Tragically, it’s estimated that nearly 10% of stroke victims suffer the deadly repercussions of medical misdiagnoses.

A patient can experience permanent physical and cognitive disabilities when a medical professional fails to immediately diagnose and treat their stroke systems. If you or a loved one has suffered the consequences of a stroke misdiagnosis, contact the Maryland medical malpractice lawyers at the Law Office of Robert Castro, P.A. Our legal team has over 50 years of collective legal experience and can help you recover damages that safeguard your quality of life. By taking legal action, you can hold the negligent medical professional responsible for your current circumstances.

Pursing Damages in a Medical Malpractice Case

State and federal laws demand that medical professionals provide a reasonable level of care to their patients. Even so, medical malpractice cases can be challenging to litigate without effective legal representation supporting your interests.

You may have grounds to file a claim if your doctor failed to provide you with preventative treatments or didn’t treat your stroke once it occurred. For example, many ischemic stroke medical malpractice claims are filed because a doctor failed to utilize a tPA (tissue plasminogen activator). At the Law Office of Robert Castro, P.A., our legal team can investigate your case, analyze applicable evidence, and work with medical experts to prove that the negligent party is responsible for your condition.

If your lawsuit is successful, you could recover the following damages:

  • Past and future medical expenses
  • Transportation costs
  • Pain and suffering
  • Loss of future earning capacity
  • Lost wages
  • Loss of enjoyment of life

Maryland’s statute of limitations states that a plaintiff has 5 years to file a medical malpractice claim. While this seems like a long time, it’s still important to contact an attorney as soon as possible, especially if you have mounting medical debts. The Maryland Courts & Judicial Proceedings Code section 3-2C-02 states that a plaintiff must file a “certificate of qualified expert” within 90 days of filing a medical malpractice claim. We can help you work with a qualified medical professional to accurately complete this document within the mandatory time period.
