Failure to Diagnose Aneurysm Lawyer
An aneurysm is a bulge in an artery that distributes blood from the heart to all parts of the body. If left untreated, an aneurysm in a main artery like the aorta can rupture and bleed throughout the chest cavity, and prove fatal.
Aneurysms can also block arteries and cause a stroke. Stroke occurs when the brain receives an insufficient supply of oxygen carried in blood through the arteries.
Thousands of people die from fatal aneurysms in Oregon and the U.S. every year. Risk factors for an aneurysm include age of the patient and family history of heart disease.
In Eugene, Greater Portland and surrounding areas in Oregon, my Law Office of Robert A. Miller provides aggressive medical malpractice representation when aneurysms or blood clots go undetected by physicians.

In addition to failing to detect aneurysms, pulmonary embolisms and blood clots, radiology errors and doctor mistakes can also result in:
- Failure to detect tumors and cancer
- Failure to detect broken bones
- Failure to detect ruptured, herniated or fractured disks
- Symptoms of stroke
- Heart attack
- Coronary heart disease
- Communication errors between a radiology department and treating physician
- Loss of images
- Delayed X-rays, causing unnecessary pain and additional injury
- Injuries caused by dangerous drugs used in the imaging process such as dyes and sedatives
A diagnostic screening procedure can detect the possibility of an aneurysm or some other blockage. Often the need for diagnostic testing is overlooked because physical symptoms may be unnoticeable until the aneurysm has grown and impedes the heart's operation. If your doctor or heart specialist failed to detect conditions of a possible aneurysm or blood clot, and the misdiagnosis resulted in a stroke or heart attack, I can investigate the possibility of the presence of medical negligence.
