Misdiagnosis or Delayed Diagnosis of Brain Aneurysms

Patients will often complain of having “the worst headache ever” while at a hospital, and a medical professional will excuse it as a result of stress. This phrase, however, is an indication of an impending brain aneurysm.

These headaches are also called “thunderclap headaches” because of their sudden and severe intensity. When a patient complains of this type of headache, a doctor should order an MRA scan immediately. Unfortunately, some medical professionals shrug it off, dismissing the pain as relative to another life circumstance or a migraine, leading to a misdiagnosis of brain aneurysms.

We will do everything we can to help you obtain full and fair compensation for the losses you have suffered.
