Colorado Cardiovascular Injury Lawyer
A simple blood clot, if not properly monitored and treated, could lead to major injuries, such as a heart attack or stroke. Your cardiovascular system travels throughout your body, so even an injury in your leg or arm could affect your internal organs, heart or brain. At the Denver, Colorado, law offices of Schoenwald & Thompson LLC, our attorneys protect the rights of victims of medical malpractice.
Post-Surgical Cardiovascular Injury
After surgery and with inactivity, blood clots are more likely to form if they are not monitored carefully and treated with precautionary measures. Failure to treat a blood clot could lead to a major cardiovascular injury. Adequate post-surgerical preventative measures have to be taken to avoid a number of complications. Many cardiovascular injuries may develop because of a misdiagnosis or a failure to test properly. Post-surgery infections can lead to blood clots, which could damage vital organs.
At the Denver law offices of Schoenwald & Thompson LLC, we will conduct a thorough investigation into your cardiovascular injury in order to determine whether or not it was the result of medical malpractice. If the negligent actions of a health care professional directly caused your blood clot, heart attack or stroke, we will fight to protect your right to just compensation.
Compartment syndrome is one type of cardiovascular injury which can cause permanent loss of function to an arm or a leg, even amputation, if not properly diagnosed and treated. If your arm or leg is in a cast and begins to swell, circulation can be impaired, leading to nerve, muscle, or tissue damage. Compartment syndrome can occur anywhere in the body, and without proper treatment and monitoring, it can lead to permanent injury and disability.
Your medical care should not end after surgery. Proper monitoring may be required to make sure you do not develop a cardiovascular injury. If your doctor failed to provide you with adequate medical care, you could be left with permanent injury.
