You had every reason to expect that your doctor would have possessed the ability to correctly diagnose the aneurysm that you or your loved suffered.

What Is an Aneurysm?

An aneurysm is a term used to describe a weakened and bulged area in the wall of an artery caused by excessive blood pressure. Aneurysms can occur in any blood vessel, but they are most common in the brain (cerebral aneurysm), the heart (aortic aneurysm), the legs behind the knee (popliteal aneurysm), the spleen (splenic artery aneurysm), and the intestines (mesenteric artery aneurysm).

The symptoms and effects of an aneurysm will vary depending on its location and how quickly it is diagnosed. If left untreated, an aneurysm can rupture and lead to a stroke or massive internal bleeding, both of which can be life threatening. Others can cause blood clotting or poor circulation.

Unfortunately, aneurysms are frequently misdiagnosed or mistaken for less serious conditions if a doctor does not perform the proper testing. In many cases, the failure to diagnose an aneurysm is the result of medical malpractice, the failure of a medical professional to act with the same degree of care that another medical professional in a similar situation would exercise.

To diagnose an aneurysm, doctors are expected to perform a variety of tests including:

  • CT scans
  • Cerebrospinal fluid test
  • MRI test
  • Cerebral angiogram
  • Ultrasound

Compensation for Victims of Late Aneurysm Diagnoses

Medical professionals should know exactly what will be at stake should they fail to quickly diagnose an aneurysm. As such, medical professionals may be held liable for any act of negligence that prevented them from diagnosing this event. With that in mind, our legal team may help you pursue compensation for your physician’s misconduct, including for the following:

  • The additional pain and suffering you or your loved one underwent
  • The full cost to the associated medical care
  • Any associated emotional trauma

Our legal team understands just how difficult this process can be; we may help you pursue the compensation you need.
