Compartment Syndrome Is a Medical Emergency
“Compartment syndrome” is a painful and dangerous condition that occurs when pressure within muscles builds to dangerous levels, pinching off blood vessels and nerves.
Delay in diagnosing and treating compartment syndrome is deadly. Many, many patients who suffer compartment syndrome lose some or all of the use of the affected arm or leg. Some of our clients have even had to have their legs amputated. Sometimes patients die of gangrene or other infections.
Compartment Syndrome Medical Malpractice
Doctors and nurses are taught that patients who have compartment syndrome need immediate surgery. Minutes count. Our clients have lost their jobs, their homes, their life savings, their mobility, and their self-respect. Some of our clients were lucky that the compartment syndrome didn’t kill them.
Sadly, these consequences all occurred because a doctor or a nurse wasn’t paying attention, or wouldn’t listen to the complaints of their patients. This is medical malpractice. People who come to emergency rooms or doctors’ offices have a right to rely on doctors to pay attention, and not to ignore or minimize your complaints.
