Diagnosing Acute Compartment Syndrome (VIDEO)
Diagnosing Acute Compartment Syndrome is not reliant on one "gold standard" test but rather the carefully evaluated amalgam of the patient's history and physical examination. When a medical provider fails to do a thorough and proper evaluation as the standard of care requires AND such medical negligence results in significant injury, then often, my firm gets involved. We've handled a number of acute compartment cases successfully. As a medical doctor who also happens to be an attorney and seasoned litigator, I help juries understand the actual science and medicine of diagnosing acute compartment syndrome. And I help juries understand how my client was injured.
