Stroke Compensation Claims

About Stroke Compensation Claims

The sooner the stroke is diagnosed the earlier the treatment is provided, making it more effective, reducing the risks of long-term complications. If you or a loved one suffered from negligent treatment concerning stroke treatment, either by misdiagnosis or diagnosed too late, we highly recommend that you contact Solicitors On Your Side now.

Most common stroke negligence claims:

There is a range of things that can be done by a medical practitioner that can be negligent, resulting in injury or complications to your health. The most common stroke negligence claims include:

  • Not monitoring patients who are at risk of having a stroke due to their medication and what the side effects of their medication are.
  • Not monitoring patients who have hypertension and suffer from a stroke.
  • High blood pressure, and not monitoring the chances of an individual with high blood pressure who is at risk of getting a stroke.
  • Stroke misdiagnosis or late diagnosis leading to delayed treatment. Late treatment can be very dangerous to an individual’s health, leading to long term complications.
  • Failing to diagnose symptoms of a transient ischemic attack.
  • Failure to refer a patient to emergency treatment when seeing symptoms.
  • Delays in paramedics reacting and arriving when the patient is experiencing a stroke or needs urgent treatment in relation to it.
  • Failure to correctly monitor symptoms after a patient is admitted to hospital.

Signs of a stroke 

The main warning sign of a stroke is on the individual’s face, by determining whether the individual can smile and whether their smile has fallen to one side. Secondly, identifying whether the individual can raise both hands above their head and keep them there. Determining whether the person can speak clearly and checking whether the speech is slurred. If an individual is experiencing any signs of a stroke it is important to call the emergency services.

Other common but less obvious signs of a stroke include; sudden weakness on one side of the body, slurred speech and difficulty in speech and finding sentences. Blurred vision and loss of sight in one or both eyes and sudden memory loss as well as a severe headache. If a medical professional fails to refer you, or the professional fails to treat you accordingly, you may be eligible to claim compensation.

How can I make a claim?

If you have faced negligence during your procedures, we highly advise that you contact one of our experienced solicitors at Solicitors On Your Side now. We will help you claim in the fastest, easiest and most stress-free way.

We advise that medical negligence claims must be usually made within three years of knowledge of the mistake. That means not since the error has occurred, but since the patient found out about the error. For patients under 18, they have three years since their 18th birthday to make a claim. For people who do not have the mental capacity to acknowledge the claim, there is no time limit.
