Pulmonary embolism is a potentially life-threatening blockage of the blood flow to the lungs due to a blood clot or other obstruction, such as an air bubble or even a piece of cholesterol from the lining of a vein. Because blood receives oxygen in the lungs for circulation to the rest of the body, it is essential that the signs of pulmonary embolism be recognized and treated promptly.

Brain damage or death can result from the failure to treat the condition. If you or someone in your family has suffered a severe injury caused by untreated or misdiagnosed pulmonary embolism, contact the Pennsylvania medical malpractice lawyers at Biancheria & Maliver P.C., in Pittsburgh.

Dr. Deborah Maliver is a board-certified internist who prior to becoming an attorney cared for post-surgical patients at risk of pulmonary embolism. The inactivity associated with extended bed rest following surgery or major illness can promote the formation of blood clots in the legs which might then break off and obstruct circulation in the lungs. She is familiar with both the danger signs and the treatment for pulmonary embolism, and her experience with the care of patients with this diagnosed condition helps her both in preparing and documenting the validity of malpractice claims.

The attorneys of Biancheria & Maliver devote just as much care and attention to the investigation and proof of damages in pulmonary embolism cases as they do to demonstrating the defendant's liability.
