Misdiagnosed Internal Bleeding

You Might Have a Medical Malpractice Lawsuit!

When you are experiencing health issues, it is critical to make sure you seek medical attention as soon as possible. When you go to the doctor, you must answer questions honestly. This is a duty you hold to yourself in order to receive the treatment you need. It is the duty of the medical professional, however, to carefully diagnose you as a patient. If this is a standard of care that is not achieved, it could result in injuries.

One of the common issues encountered in malpractice cases is undiagnosed internal bleeding. Our Chicago medical malpractice attorneys know that symptoms of internal bleeding can vary. It is important for medical professionals to recognize the symptoms and the situations in which they occur. If the medical professional believes the patient is exaggerating the pain or do not test properly, this could lead to a situation of failure to diagnose. This is negligence and our team at Power Rogers & Smith, L.L.P. aims to help victims of malpractice recover compensation for injuries suffered.

Understand the Symptoms

By recognizing the symptoms of internal bleeding, you have the chance of seeking medical treatment in a timely manner. A doctor should be able to run the proper procedures to check for internal bleeding and provide the appropriate treatment options.

Internal bleeding will often show symptoms of the following:

  • Blood in the patients urine or black stools
  • Blood releasing from nose, ears, mouth, or other orifices
  • Reduced mental function, nausea, dizziness
  • Shock from decreased amounts of blood

There are a number of factors that can cause internal bleeding including trauma to the body, damaged blood vessels, clotting, and various medications. If any of this has occurred and you recognize some symptoms that may signify internal bleeding, your immediate action should be to go to the hospital where a professional can properly diagnose you. If you are not diagnosed properly and further injury is the result, this is considered negligence.
