Medical Negligence Causing Blood Clots – Can I Sue?

Medical Malpractice

Deep vein thrombosis is the medical term that refers to the development of a blood clot deep within the veins of the leg. This kind of blood clot is dangerous as it can slowly travel unnoticed up the leg, into the thigh and the abdominal cavity, before finding itself in the lungs or the heart, causing an embolism which is usually fatal. Blood clots are typically seen in individuals over the age of 50, those with vascular issue, as well as those living sedentary lifestyles as well as people who have to sit down for long periods of time as they work such as in the case of truck drivers and receptionists. Due to the insidious nature of blood clots, physicians should screen at-risk patients as well as treat symptoms in a timely manner before they turn into medical emergencies. Blood clots can also develop on account of negligent medical care in individuals who check into hospitals only to suffer DVT complications. If you believe that negligence at a hospital caused your blood clot, you have every right to file a legal claim in order to recover money damages, and we’re here to help with that.
