Legal Representation For Delayed Diagnosis Errors In Heart Attacks

Heart attacks require immediate medical attention in a life-or-death situation. When the malpractice of a doctor or other medical professional delays an accurate diagnosis of a heart attack, the consequences can be deadly. When these diagnosis errors can cause a lifetime of complications, it is only reasonable that you receive fair compensation for your injuries.

At Howell Law Firm, PC, we have more than 25 years of experience representing clients through all forms of medical malpractice injuries. Our years of representation have resulted in us securing settlements worth millions of dollars for our clients, and we are ready to put that experience to work for you. We understand the consequences of a delayed heart attack diagnosis, and we want to be the ones who pursue every dollar you need to recover from the harm you experienced.

The Importance Of A Diagnosis

The more time that passes between the beginning of a heart attack and the treatment for it, the more severe the avoidable consequences are. Some consequences of a delayed diagnosis include:

  • Additional heart damage
  • Heart failure
  • Cardiac arrest
  • Cardiogenic shock
  • Reduced efficacy of treatment
  • Higher health care costs
  • Death

Whether a misdiagnosis happened because of faulty testing equipment, lack of education, lack of communication or any other violation of the duty of care that is owed between a doctor and patient, you deserve justice for the harm you suffered.
