Pulmonary embolisms (PEs) occur after strokes frequently enough that doctors should monitor patients for symptoms or consider preventative care. When they fail to do so, a stroke pulmonary embolism misdiagnosis could occur. This could delay treatment, leading to serious complications or even death.
A Marion medical misdiagnosis lawyer from The Fitch Law Firm LLC can help you understand if you were a victim of medical malpractice and if you can hold the doctor or hospital responsible for the harm you suffered. We provide free case consultations. We want to discuss what happened and learn as much about your case as possible. Contact us today to get started.
Our Marion, Ohio, Stroke Pulmonary Embolism Misdiagnosis Lawyers Recover Compensation for Clients
A pulmonary embolism is a serious threat to your health. About a third of those who do not receive treatment will die. With prompt diagnosis and treatment, this number quickly falls. When a patient is already in the hospital or being followed by their doctor closely following a stroke, it should be easy to get a quick diagnosis and treatment.
When the doctor misdiagnoses the patient and the pulmonary embolism goes untreated for an extended period, serious injuries or death could occur. Our attorneys represent these patients and their families, helping them seek and recover money for related expenses such as:
- Additional medical treatment required
- Long-term care costs if there are lasting effects
- Lost income and diminished earning capacity
- Miscellaneous expenses with receipts
- Pain and suffering damages
- Punitive damages as awarded by the jury at trial when appropriate
Sometimes, the patient dies from a stroke pulmonary embolism misdiagnosis. When this occurs, a Marion wrongful death attorney from our team will pursue compensation for your family and hold the at-fault parties accountable. We help families recover financially and get justice.

Our Marion, Ohio, Lawyers Build Strong Stroke Pulmonary Embolism Misdiagnosis Cases
Sometimes, a doctor fails to recognize the signs of a pulmonary embolism after a stroke or diagnoses another condition instead. This is problematic because it delays treatment of the PE and leads to worse outcomes than if the patient receives prompt treatment.
Unfortunately, misdiagnosis of pulmonary embolisms is not rare. Doctors see the symptoms and diagnose the patient with one of several other conditions and begin treatment for that condition. This could include:
- Heart failure
- Chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD)
As the patient receives treatment for that condition, areas of their lungs are not receiving adequate blood flow, and preventable damage occurs. After a stroke, when the chances of PE are increased, doctors should always suspect the condition when related symptoms occur.
A misdiagnosis could be medical malpractice. Our Marion, Ohio, attorneys can look at your case to determine if we believe malpractice occurred. We want to sit down with you to discuss this possibility. To hold a doctor or facility liable for medical malpractice based on a misdiagnosis, we need to show:
- There was a doctor-patient relationship
- The medical care provided did not meet an acceptable standard of care
- The doctor’s misdiagnosis caused harm
- Our client suffered physical, emotional, and/or financial damages
There are many reasons why a doctor or hospital might not provide an acceptable standard of care, and we can hold them liable for any of them. They are responsible for medical negligence even if they were understaffed, had poorly trained staff, or if staff failed to follow correct procedures.
Our team has a network of medical experts who help us establish what the acceptable standard of care might look like in your case and determine whether your doctor or facility staff provided it. This is often central to these cases, so we work closely with medical experts in the area on these claims.
As our Marion stroke pulmonary embolism misdiagnosis attorney navigates the process and holds the at-fault parties accountable, you can focus on treatment and recovery. It is vital for you to continue medical care throughout this time. You do not need to worry about your legal case. You take care of your health and well-being, and we will handle the rest.
