Arizona Medical Malpractice Attorneys
A primary threat to the wellbeing of orthopedic surgery patients is the possibility of a pulmonary embolism during or shortly after a bone operation. When people are lying in bed for more than two days, there is high risk for blood clots to develop in the legs.
If you or a family member suffered injury or death as a result of a pulmonary embolism following surgery in California or Arizona, you are invited to contact the Phoenix pulmonary embolism lawyers at Patton Law Practice.
Investigation of Possible Causes of Pulmonary Embolism after Surgery
Our experienced legal team includes a medical doctor and attorneys with a track record of favorable outcomes in cases where established standards of care were not followed by healthcare providers. Our first course of action when we begin an investigation into the facts of your pulmonary embolism case will be to seek answers to basic questions including the following:
- Were caregivers following doctors' orders and standard preventive procedures?
- Was the patient wearing compression stockings as prescribed to push blood out of the legs into the rest of the body?
- Was recommended medication intended to thin blood administered per reasonable standards of care?
- Was the patient monitored for complaints of pain in the calf, pain in the chest, or any presence of dark spots on the legs?
- Was the patient receiving therapy as recommended to promote blood circulation?
