Charlotte Pulmonary Embolism Lawyer

Legal Representation for Deep Vein Thrombosis Injuries

Getting the right treatment for your deep vein thrombosis can be the difference between life and death. When DVT goes unnoticed, it can lead to a pulmonary embolism. If you have suffered severe medical setbacks due to the misdiagnosis of a pulmonary embolism, an experienced Charlotte medical malpractice lawyer from our firm can help you through this difficult time.

At Elam & Rousseaux, PLLC, we have more than 90 years of experience representing those who have been injured because of medical malpractice.

DVT, Pulmonary Embolism, & Medical Malpractice Cases

Similar to a stroke, if deep vein thrombosis is caught early enough, it can be easily resolved without any long symptoms. However, when there is a failure to properly diagnose DVT, it can spread to the lungs and become fatal. Your doctor and medical professionals have an obligation to you and when they fail you, they should be held responsible.

Tiredness and weakness after a sprain or other leg injury may lead to deep vein thrombosis and an eventual blood clot in the leg. Whether you sought help from your primary care physician or you made an emergency room visit, it is the responsibility of medical professionals to recognize these symptoms and take proper preventative action.

The symptoms of a pulmonary embolism can be very subtle and hard to diagnose correctly, and may include:

  • Cramps
  • Muscles seizing painfully
  • Shortness of breath
  • Anxiety or chest discomfort
  • Lightheadedness
  • Swelling/discoloration

Deep Vein Thrombosis Emergency Care

Did you go to the emergency room for treatment after experiencing pain in your leg? If you failed to get a proper diagnosis from the emergency room physician, you may never have gotten the chance to see the specialist who could admit you to the hospital and get you the proper care you needed for deep vein thrombosis.

Our Charlotte Medical malpractice attorneys truly care about what has happened to you. You can rely on our team to represent your case and pursue compensation on your behalf.
