Specialist Support for Stroke Medical Negligence Claim
Strokes are the third leading cause of mortality and the leading cause of disability here in Ireland. There are five different types of stroke: Transient Ischemic Attack (Mini-Stroke), Ischemic Stroke, Cryptogenic Stroke, Brain Stem Stroke, and Hemorrhagic Stroke. Sometimes a stroke can happen as a result of medical negligence which can cause severe medical conditions such as hypoxia, (when the brain does not get enough oxygen), and anoxia (when the brain is completely deprived of oxygen).
Consequently, only 32% of stroke survivors who previously worked will return to the workplace full-time a year after the debilitating event. This can have a severe financial impact as costs associated with recovery from a stroke are immediate and significant including rehabilitation, nursing, housing alteration, and occupational as well as speech therapy costs.
