Georgia Medical Malpractice: Failure To Diagnose Heart Attacks

A heart attack can change your life in an instant. If that heart attack is misdiagnosed or goes unnoticed by medical professionals, the results can be catastrophic. Our medical malpractice lawyers at Hilley & Frieder, P.C., represent clients throughout the greater Atlanta area in a broad range of medical malpractice claims, including misdiagnosed heart attacks. Our lawyers work hard to hold medical professionals and health care facilities responsible for negligent behavior and help you pursue the maximum level of compensation available for your case.

Heart Attack Signs And Symptoms

If a patient is complaining of a combination of symptoms that includes chest pain, nausea, and shortness of breath, these are telltale symptoms of a heart attack in progress. Any doctor should be able to recognize these signs and take immediate and necessary steps to get a heart attack under control.

If the doctor fails to interpret the symptoms correctly, the results can be catastrophic. At a minimum, the patient can be left with severe damage to their heart. The more likely possibility, however, is the death of the patient. If you have suffered or a loved one has died because of a negligent doctor’s misdiagnosis of a heart attack, our personal injury lawyers can help you pursue a claim for medical malpractice or even a wrongful death lawsuit.

Our Team Understands How Heart Attacks Change Lives

Survivors and surviving dependent family members have the right to seek damages against the negligent parties, including the lost income that their loved one would have provided, lost companionship and guidance, medical and funeral expenses and others. Our attorneys will work diligently to see that you receive fair compensation for the loss you have suffered.
