Malpractice Claim for Failure to Diagnose a Heart Attack

Failure to Diagnose a Heart Attack Lawyers and Attorneys New York

According to the Centers for Disease Control (CDC), more than 90 percent of Americans know that chest pain is one of the symptoms for a heart attack. Unfortunately, some doctors, when presented with a patient with chest pain, do not make a correct diagnosis. Sometimes patients are diagnosed with indigestion when actuality, their very lives are on the line. When patients are treated soon after a heart attack, they typically have a much greater chance of survival. The failure to interpret the symptoms of a heart attack can lead to death or severe injury.

If your loved one died from a heart attack, or if you suffered needless injury due to a doctor's neglect, you may have a claim for malpractice. A medical malpractice lawyer can investigate your case and develop a legal claim for your damages. For decades, the attorneys of Rosenberg, Minc, Falkoff & Wolff LLP have helped people throughout New York and beyond recover financial compensation for injuries and death caused by medical malpractice.

Failing to diagnose a heart attack can occur in a number of different contexts. Perhaps the most common failure involves discharging a patient who reports chest pain or other symptoms of heart attack, such as shortness of breath and nausea, from the hospital. While these failures often occur in the emergency room, doctors in other settings can make this misdiagnosis as well. Other potential causes include incorrectly interpreting the results of an electrocardiogram (EKG) or proscribing medication that could adversely impact the heart.

If our law firm accepts your case, we will work with medical and economic experts to prove that medical negligence was responsible for your injuries. Your injuries may include medical expenses, lost income, and other damages for pain and suffering. Our history of success in malpractice claims stands as a testament to our level of experience and skill.
