A woman from Charleston, West Virginia, began pursuing justice for her misdiagnosis case in April of 2016. This woman, Lori Folio filed her case against Dr. Christopher Bowman and his employer, Dunbar Medical Associates, PLLC. Her claims of medical malpractice are sadly not uncommon, but they are made with conviction and truth. Folio experienced a misdiagnosis–in this case, she had a stroke that went unnoticed by Bowman. And, because of such an egregious mistake, she suffered lifelong brain damage and paralysis. Read on to find out more about Lori’s case, and discover what you can do about a misdiagnosed stroke.
What Happened in Folio’s Case?
In May of 2014, Folio sought medical advice from Dr. Christopher Bowman, presenting symptoms of severe headache and nausea. When observed from an episodic standpoint, a stroke can be diagnosed through repeated bouts of symptoms. However, Bowman diagnosed Folio with a common virus and claimed the symptoms would soon pass. A month later, Folio complained of a much more serious symptom–weakness on the right side of her body. This is an obvious sign of stroke, and she was sent to the emergency room. There, she was diagnosed with a hemorrhagic stroke, and suffered serious consequences. She is now paralyzed on her right side, experiencing language and speech impairment, and going through cognitive processing issues. She has been told that these complications could be permanent.
