Stroke Malpractice Lawyer Group: Stand Together
The Stroke Malpractice Lawyer Group is a group of lawyers from across the United States.
The group of medical malpractice lawyers are dedicated to representing stroke victims. The stroke victims they represent did not receive proper care from their doctors and hospitals. The group is called the Stroke Litigation Group.
The negligent medical care usually includes hospitals making the stroke victim wait. Cases against doctors arise when the doctors send the patients home instead of to a stroke center.
What Cory Rosenbaum and Robert Fader look for before they sue a doctor or hospital for stroke malpractice is described in a video.
The Stroke Litigation Group was formed within the American Association for Justice in 2014. The American Association for Justice works to preserve all Americans’ rights to the court system. The American Association for Justice works against things like forced arbitration clauses. The AAJ works against insurance companies’ attempts to put limits on how much they must pay when people to suffer devastating injuries.

Stroke Malpractice Lawyer Group: Educate Each Other
At the July 2015 meeting of the Stroke Lawyers Group, Cory Rosenbaum also delivered a lecture to the group. The lecture taught other lawyers what to look for when a client calls about a suing the doctor or hospital for negligent medical care after they suffered a stroke.
Stroke lawsuits arise from mainly two mistakes by doctors and hospitals:
1. A doctor fails to recognize that a patient has symptoms of an impending stroke and sends the patient home. This is a huge issue that stroke malpractice lawyers look for.
2. A hospital fails to provide clot busting medication fast enough. The timeline of the stroke symptoms, arriving at the hospital and all delays are also what stroke malpractice lawyers look for in the hospital records.
When there are delays in medical care, the stroke victim suffers more brain injuries. Faster care usually means less injuries to the victim’s brain.
When a hospital makes a stroke victim wait, the stroke victim gets more hurt.
When a doctor sends a patient home instead of to a stroke center, the victim gets more hurt.
The injuries people suffer from stroke medical negligence include:
