Pulmonary Embolism & Deep Vein Thrombosis

In a medical emergency, timing is critical. When a patient suffers from a blood clot, that clot may travel to the brain, heart and lungs, and cause life-changing damage. Doctors must act quickly to prevent that from happening. Failing to act in a timely manner may be considered medical malpractice, especially when the doctor failed to diagnose the clot or misdiagnosed the blood clot as another condition.

At The Donahey Law Firm, our experienced trial lawyers represent blood clot victims and their families in medical malpractice litigation. We have locations in Columbus and throughout Ohio, and can help clients throughout the state.

Failing to Prevent Blood Clots - Medical Malpractice

Medical malpractice may also occur when doctors fail to prevent pulmonary embolism or deep vein thrombosis (DVT) after surgery. When a patient has certain risk factors, such as obesity or old age, or is in surgery for a long time, a surgeon should take preventative measures to help stop a clot from happening, including:

  • Providing tight stockings, called Ted Stockings, for the patient
  • Using sequential compression devices
  • Placing the patient on a blood thinner/anticoagulant
  • Placing a patient on anti-coagulants after orthopedic surgery
