Not all hospitals are the same when it comes to treating stroke.

Hospitals and doctors commit malpractice and negligence by not transferring stroke patients to comprehensive stroke centers.

Your life may depend on what hospital treats your stroke.

Choosing the Correct Hospital for Stroke Treatment

The only hospitals that are truly stroke centers are those allowed to call themselves “Comprehensive Stroke Centers.” These are the hospitals that can treat all aspects of stroke. Other hospitals may be allowed to call themselves “acute stroke care centers” or “primary stroke centers,” but if something goes wrong and you need a high level of care for your stroke, you should be immediately sent to a comprehensive stroke center.

A hospital must transfer a patient to the best stroke center available to care for the patient. Unfortunately, this does not always happen. Hospitals often are negligent and commit malpractice by not transferring patients with stroke to the appropriate facility.

If you or a loved is having symptoms of a stroke, it is best to go immediately to a comprehensive stroke center. For you convenience, the stroke lawyers at Eadie Hill have included a list of every comprehensive stroke center in the United States for your convenience.

 Our No Fear Guarantee 

You’ve probably seen the lawyer ads: “No Fee Guarantee!” “No Fees if We Don’t Win!”   

Guess what? That’s true for just about any plaintiff’s lawyer.  It’s what a “contingency fee” means.  It doesn’t mean they’ll work hard.  Or get a good result for you.  It doesn’t mean much at all.

What we promise you is a NO FEAR guarantee.

What does that mean?  For 99% of our clients, a medical injury caused by negligence is new.  The medical malpractice lawsuit process is new.  Depositions, discovery, trial . . . everything is new.

New can be scary.  Especially when it involves having to testify under oath.

We’ve developed systems that let you address and move past the fear. Through education and information about the process. Role-playing and other preparation techniques. We empower you to be fearless.  Because this process is hard enough.

Contact us now.

Find the Right Lawyers for You

Just as people need specialized medical care for certain medical conditions, people who have suffered unique forms of medical malpractice need legal representation from lawyers with specific knowledge about their medical condition and injury.

Stroke malpractice is a unique kind of medical malpractice.  In order to get the best advice and the highest recovery for a stroke malpractice case, you will need a trial lawyer with expertise in the legal and medical issues concerning stroke.  These medical and legal issues include the proper prevention of stroke, diagnosis of stroke, treatment of stroke, and post-stroke care.

Not many lawyers know their way around stroke malpractice law.

We exclusively handle medical claims, which include medical and nursing negligence in the hospital, medical office, and nursing home setting. 100% our cases involve the failure to provide appropriate hospital, medical, and nursing care to members of the community.

These include cases where patients have been misdiagnosed, mismanaged, or mistreated by medical corporations and hospitals.

How We’re Paid

We advance the costs of the investigation and lawsuit.  We only get paid from money we collect in a settlement of verdict: there’s never a bill to you.

By taking on all the risk, you can be sure we’re only going to take on cases we believe in fully.

What Can We Do to Change Hospital or Doctor Conduct?

Hospitals and even private physician companies are corporations: they speak the language of money.  Corporations, even non-profit corporations, are not real people; they do not have hearts, minds, souls.

In our experience, holding a medical corporation responsible and accountable for carelessly injuring patients through a money verdict at trial, or a settlement motivated by their fear of trial, is the best way to make sure there is change.

A well-fought lawsuit can help prevent other people from being injured in the same way.

What Damages are Available?

Money damages available in a stroke lawsuit can involve economic costs (medical bills, etc.), emotional harms like pain and suffering, disfigurement, disability, and, if the injuries cause death, the mental anguish and loss of family members for wrongful death.

Many states allow for punitive damages when a medical corporation consciously disregards a patient’s rights and safety with a great probability of causing substantial harm. They are awarded in exceptional cases.

We’ve proven punitive damages at trial, including a $3,000,000 verdict for punitive damages against one of the largest medical companies in America.

Punitive damages are intended to punish, deter the defendant from doing the same thing in the future, and reform the nursing home industry.
