After a stroke, time is of the essence. Tissue Plasminogen Activator, or tPA, is a powerful medicine used to dissolve blood clots quickly. If applied as soon as possible after a stroke, it can prevent further clotting and improve the quality of life for the patient.
When a good candidate for the drug is delayed treatment, the results can cause serious, life-threatening damage, including impairments to mobility, speech and cognitive functions. These untreated strokes can result in wrongful death. If you feel that you or a loved one experienced a delay in tPA treatment, you may have a medical malpractice claim. Make sure you work with an attorney who has experience handling delayed tPA treatment claims of this kind.
