Misdiagnosis of Heart Disease
When Heart Disease is Not Diagnosed in Time
Heart problems, particularly heart attacks (myocardial infarction), are immediate issues. Often, there is a window of opportunity during which these medical conditions can successfully be treated. If a doctor misses that opportunity due to medical negligence in the form of misdiagnosis, the result can be serious damage or even wrongful death.
At Perey Law Group, our attorneys seek full compensation for people who have suffered complications due to a heart disease misdiagnosis. We represent people in Seattle and throughout Washington.
Misdiagnosis of Heart Attacks in the Emergency Room
The scenario is all too familiar. A person arrives at the emergency room clutching their chest. They think they are having a heart attack. They see the doctor. Instead of doing a full assessment, the doctor says it is not a heart attack, but acid reflux or a muscle twitch.
The patient then leaves the emergency room, only to be hit full force by a heart attack that results in life-changing injury or death.
Misdiagnosis of Heart Disease and Other Heart Problems
Heart attack is not the only heart problem that can be misdiagnosed. Other conditions include things that are less common, such as cardiac infections.
Our attorneys take great care in investigating heart disease and heart attack misdiagnosis cases. We will find out what steps the doctor missed and hold them responsible for the damage they failed to prevent.
Since our establishment in 1983, we have achieved a long record of historic verdicts and settlements. Our lawyers know how to obtain results in heart disease misdiagnosis cases.
