Misdiagnosis: Heart Attacks

When you go to the hospital or to a doctor, you have the right to expect that you will receive appropriate treatment. All too often, doctors disregard chest pains, arm pain, shortness of breath and other symptoms of a heart attack. Instead of receiving appropriate treatment, patients are sent home, even when they have significant risk factors like a family history of coronary artery disease. When medical professionals fail to diagnose your heart attack, and you are injured as a result, you have the right to take legal action against those responsible.

Many heart attacks are initially misdiagnosed as heartburn, acid reflux, anxiety, stress or other relatively minor conditions. Additionally, women and younger people are at greater risk for heart attack misdiagnosis, since these groups do not fit the description of a typical heart attack victim. Attorney Ryan Springer will work to recover damages for the present and future medical costs you are forced to incur due to malpractice, as well as your damages for lost income, and pain and suffering.  If a misdiagnosed heart attack results in wrongful death, the family has a right to recover.
