Need a lawyer for an aortic aneurysm malpractice case in Los Angeles? An aortic aneurysm is a very dangerous and serious medical condition. It occurs when the wall of the aorta is weakened. In its weakened state, the aorta can burst. Aortas carry massive volumes of blood, so a break can have massive consequences-even death. Negligence on a doctor’s part to properly treat this is devastating for a patient’s health. Aneurysms can be detected by an MRI, CT, and even X-ray. Even if a patient is not experiencing symptoms, a doctor should be regularly checking an aneurysm to ensure that it is not enlarging or worsening. The likelihood of an aneurysm bursting increases as it enlarges. If an aorta has burst because of this serious condition, a doctor would patch it surgically to reinforce it and ensure that it does not burst again.
Doctors should be held responsible for their actions that lead to a patient’s physical impairment or wrongful death.

When you put your life into the hands of a doctor, you expect that he will take good care of you, and do everything possible to ensure your safety. The failure to properly examine or detect such a serious condition is careless and possibly deadly on the part of a healthcare professional and should not be taken lightly.
