Pulmonary Embolism and Deep Vein Thrombosis
Deep vein thrombosis (DVT) is a blood clot that forms in a vein deep in the body, usually in the leg. DVT can occur in patients who sit for an extended period of time in one position at work, in a car, or on an airplane, or who have certain underlying medical conditions. In a medical setting, the risk of DVT is increased in patients who have undergone lengthy surgery or are bedridden and unable to move freely.
The risk for DVT or pulmonary embolism is well known, and doctors have the responsibility to take the necessary steps to prevent it. A doctor’s failure to diagnose and treat DVT or pulmonary embolism places a patient at serious risk. CT scans and Doppler studies can be performed to determine if a patient has developed blood clots or pulmonary embolism. If the necessary tests are not ordered, it can be grounds for a medical malpractice claim. Mr. Bogaty has represented clients in cases involving the improper use of blood thinning medications, as well as premature discharge from the hospital or emergency room with undiagnosed DVT and pulmonary embolism.
