Stroke and Heart Attack Medical Malpractice Lawyers

Chest pain is one of the most common complications that sends people to the emergency room or their doctor’s office. Unfortunately, many primary care physicians are inclined to diagnose these symptoms as less serious than they actually may be.

While not every stroke or heart problem can be prevented, physicians or emergency room personnel can often overlook symptoms of heart disease or stroke that can lead to and, as a result, the patient can suffer unnecessary injury or death. Preventable medical errors and mistakes occur when the symptoms are minimized, misinterpreted or mistaken for another cause.
If a doctor fails to diagnose a heart attack, such as incorrectly blaming the warning signs as digestion, or anxiety problems, this can lead to permanent heart damage or the patient could even die. In most cases, doctors may misinterpret symptoms as a result of digestive or underlying anxiety issues. If a patient is complaining of shortness of breath, chest pain with a burning sensation, nausea, lightheadedness, sweating or fainting, the medical provider should run tests to make sure these are not signs of a heart attack.

Even if a heart attack does not result in death it can lead to serious complications afterward and expensive medical bills. Post heart attack complications include:

  • Hypoxemia
  • Brain damage
  • Pulmonary deep vein thrombosis
  • Ventricular aneurysms


Misdiagnosed Stroke Lawsuit

When a doctor fails to diagnose the symptoms of a stroke, the patient can suffer a serious and permanent brain injury or die. If the onset of a stroke is diagnosed early and treated in a timely manner blood flow can be restored to the patient’s brain, helping to prevent or limit the damage.
