When it comes to treating stroke, preventing permanent physical damage often comes down to seconds in the ambulance, emergency center or hospital room. How quickly the doctor acts can make the difference between temporary numbness and permanent brain damage — leading to permanent impairment of speech, comprehension and body movement.

If your loved one suffered serious and prolonged impairment following stroke treatment by a medical professional in Oregon or southwestern Washington, you may have a legitimate claim for negligence based on misdiagnosis or improper treatment. Talk to a Portland medical negligence attorney at Miller & Wagner, LLP, with offices in Portland.

Stroke results when a portion of the brain loses oxygen because of a rupture or occlusion of a blood vessel. Licensed medical professionals are highly trained in techniques to restore oxygen to the affected areas as quickly as possible. Failure to recognize the symptoms and treat the stroke efficiently and effectively can result in permanent brain damage and resulting impairment to parts of the body controlled by the affected section of the brain. Damages can include:

  • Permanent paralysis to one side of the face
  • Permanent weakness or disuse of one or more limbs on one side of the body
  • Permanent slurred speech, due to facial muscle impairment and/or cognitive impairment
  • Slurred speech and difficulty understanding spoken language
  • Dizziness and lack of coordination
  • Difficulty walking and manipulating objects with hands and feet
  • Severe headaches
