Missouri Ischemic Stroke Injury Lawyers

Ischemic strokes are more common than hemorrhagic strokes, accounting for 87% of all strokes. Ischemic strokes are caused by blocked or clogged blood vessels that limit the flow of blood to the brain, rather than a burst blood vessel (hemorrhagic strokes). If someone suffers an ischemic stroke, they’ll experience brain cell damage. The impact that an ischemic stroke can have varies depending on several factors, including the size of the stroke, how long the patient went untreated, and other variable factors. If you or someone you love suffered an ischemic stroke in an accident, and consequently, brain damage, you need to hire a Missouri Ischemic Stroke Lawyer.

Often, ischemic strokes cause steep medical expenses, pain and suffering, lost wages, and other damages that can be challenging in the wake of an accident.

Symptoms of an Ischemic Stroke | Missouri Ischemic Stroke Injury Lawyers

During an ischemic stroke, brain cells and tissues begin to die within minutes from lack of oxygen to the brain. If the brain isn’t getting enough oxygen and nutrients, this can cause harm to basic bodily functions, such as coordination and speech. Other symptoms of an ischemic stroke include the following:

  • Numbness or weakness of the face, arm, or legs that typically occurs on one side of the body
  • Confusion, slurred speech, trouble speaking, or comprehending what others are saying
  • Loss of vision, or blurred vision, in one or both eyes
  • Struggling to walk, keep balance, unexpected dizziness, or other losses of coordination
  • An unexpected and severe headache, often on one side, with no known cause

If you experienced any of the above symptoms or other severe pain after an accident, it’s essential to get examined by a medical professional immediately. A doctor can determine what caused your stroke, provide an outlook for injuries, and with a Missouri Ischemic Stroke Injury Lawyer, determine if you can bring a claim.

Ischemic Stroke Claims in Missouri

A traumatic brain injury, such as an ischemic stroke, can cause severe harm and losses. In most states, if another person is responsible for a victim’s injuries, the victim has the right to pursue an injury lawsuit to recover damages. Typically, with a valid claim and substantial evidence, such as a medical report and police report, victims of ischemic stroke injuries in Missouri can recover compensation for the following damages:

  • Medical expenses – medical bills, rehabilitation fees, present and future medication costs
  • Pain and suffering – suffering a stroke can be traumatic. In Missouri, victims of a preventable ischemic stroke can receive compensation for mental, emotional, or physical anguish associated with their injuries
  • Loss of income – if a victim has to miss work due to their injuries, or their injuries prevent them from working in the future, the negligent party involved could be liable to compensate them for lost wages
  • Failure to diagnose – if a doctor fails to diagnose an ischemic stroke victim’s injuries after an accident, the doctor and the hospital that they are employed with could be sued for damages
  • Property damage – if the victim’s stroke was caused in a car or truck accident, they could receive compensation for damage done to their vehicle or personal property inside of their vehicle at the time of the accident

The recoverable settlement for an ischemic stroke injury varies significantly but with an aggressive Ischemic Stroke Injury Lawyer in Missouri on your side, the odds of recovering the maximum amount of compensation for your claim increase significantly.
