Causes of Blood Clots

Blood Clots can be the result of one or more conditions that changes or causes strain on the blood. One common cause of blood clots is a change in one’s blood flow. Some common causes of blood clots include:

  • A diminished blood flow which is caused by an injury, such as a motor vehicle accident.
  • Surgery on one or more areas of one’s body, which causes blood flow to be reduced.
  • A reduction of activity such as prolonged sitting, lying down, or being put on bedrest for three or more days.

Regardless of the cause of a blood clot in the leg or vein, prompt treatment is crucial to protecting a patient’s health.

Consequences of Failure to Detect or Treat Blood Clots

The failure to treat a blood clot has caused a variety of health complications, one of which is strokes. A stroke that results from a blood clot can occur when a blood clot blocks an artery that supplies blood to the brain. In some cases, a blood clot has been known to cause a bludgeon or weakness in arteries, which leads to an aneurysm. If you or your loved one has suffered a stroke as a result of a medical professional’s negligence, you need an experienced attorney who has the knowledge and expertise to review your medical records and work with other experts who can help prove your claim.
