The aorta is the main blood vessel in the human body leading from the heart to the rest of the body. As people age, the walls of their veins and blood vessels tend to degenerate and become weaker. This allows the aorta to experience localized dilatation, leaving the bulging area susceptible to swelling, hemorrhage or rupture. Further causes of weakened vessel walls include:

  • Genetic problems
  • Smoking
  • Infection
  • High blood pressure
  • Hardening of the arteries

Because of the advances in technology, especially in the medical field, aortic aneurysms are often quickly detected and diagnosed. Unfortunately, there are times when symptoms of aortic aneurysms are ignored or recognized too late. Often, because the symptoms mimic conditions such as heart burn, gas or heart attack, treatment may be administered that does not address the problem—or aggravates it.

Your Rights to Compensation

If your family has suffered from aortic aneurysm and you believe the condition or result was preventable, call Dallas W. Hartman, P.C. for a free consultation. You can speak with an experienced attorney, get answers to your questions and discover if you have a valid claim for financial compensation.

Insurance companies, especially those that offer medical malpractice coverage, are loathe to part with their money. They will do all they can to convince injured victims to drop their claims, or to accept menial settlements. The pittance offered may cover a mere percentage of the expenses involved in care, treatment and, unfortunately, burial.
