Failure to Detect and Treat Abnormal Bleeding
In another situation, individuals who undergo brain surgery may see normal bleeding as a result of incisions. However, if another part of the brain unrelated to the surgery begins to bleed, it can cause serious problems. Once again, this bleeding can be considered surgery-related and can be misdiagnosed or go untreated. This is an act of malpractice and the doctor should be held responsible for his or her actions.
Unfortunately, abnormal bleeding is in fact a problem that can cause long-term problems in the patient. Even worse, these conditions are often preventable with proper detection and treatment. Internal bleeding can be caused by a number of accidents and can affect a number of organs inside the body. Making sure these are diagnosed correctly is important as it could be the difference between a treatable problem and a serious medical condition.If you or someone you love has suffered due to failure to diagnose or treat correctly, you may be able to file a medical malpractice claim in order to seek compensation. By taking legal action, you can also help prevent this situation from happening to someone else and hold the doctor accountable.
