Misdiagnosis of Heart Attack and Heart Disease
It is well accepted that heart disease, and even heart attacks, are treatable conditions if discovered and treated early on. Our law firm has represented families and patients who have had signs of heart disease or heart attack and have not been diagnosed or treated properly.
Most emergency rooms have specific protocols for treating signs of a heart attack, or signs of heart disease. Chest pain is a source of many medical journal articles, and there are well accepted methods of managing it.
It is imperative for a physician to respond promptly to signs of heart problems. Unfortunately, in many instances and in spite of all of the literature and science available to the medical community, doctors and nurses do not take signs of heart problems seriously. When this happens, death or very serious injury can occur.
Our firm has represented many victims of improper management of heart problems over the years.
