Did Your Doctor Fail in Treating Your Hypertension? McCready Law
Hypertension is one of the most common conditions in the country, and it is thought to be primarily caused by lifestyle factors such as a high sodium diet and the ravages of a stressful life. Hypertension can be dangerous because it may lead to the rupture of blood vessels in the heart or brain, causing a hemorrhage or stroke. Therefore, doctors usually closely monitor high blood pressure in patients and prescribe medication as well as a lifestyle change in order to manage blood pressure so it stays within manageable levels. Medical malpractice when it comes to high blood pressure often involves failure to monitor or even diagnose high blood pressure, thereby causing negative health effects such as cardiovascular complications and even death.

Hypertension and Medical Malpractice
It is important to treat hypertensive distress IMMEDIATELY to save the patient’s life as well as prevent damage to key organs such as the kidneys, lungs, brain, liver and the heart. Doctors are bound by the Hippocratic oath as well as duty of care to ensure that you get the medical treatment you deserve in a reasonable timeframe in order to save your life. Failure by physicians to provide timely diagnosis followed by quick treatment may constitute negligence which can be grounds for a high blood pressure lawsuit. Breach of duty and the accompanying evidence that illustrates negligence are grounds for a medical malpractice lawsuit.
