DID DOCTORS FAIL TO DIAGNOSE A HEART ATTACK, WITH DISASTROUS RESULTS?
When you reported to your family doctor or the emergency room with complaints of chest pain, nausea, vomiting and radiating pain in your left arm, and your complaints were disregarded or ignored — and you suffered a heart attack after going back home — you may be a victim of medical malpractice.
At the law offices of Lourie, Chance, Forlines, Carter & King, PC, we are prepared to fight on your behalf in pursuit of compensation you may be eligible for after a health care provider’s failure to diagnose your heart attack.
Upon detailed investigation of your accident, we may learn that you did not get an EKG as you should have or your doctor did not check the level of your cardiac enzymes, or you did not receive the catheterization or stent placement that might have been able to prevent or mitigate the damage caused by your heart attack.
Your doctor or the ER doctor did not pay attention to your concerns, and the result was pain, expense, and possibly lasting damage to your body. Failure to diagnose a heart attack can have both short-term and long-term effects. You may have lost your husband or wife due to death by heart attack after symptoms were ignored. Our attorneys are available to evaluate your case and, if warranted, prepare a medical malpractice and/or a wrongful death claim to compensate you for your expenses and losses.
