Failure to Diagnose a Heart Attack
Heart Attack Misdiagnosis in Dallas and North Texas
Every doctor and nurse in America has been trained to recognize the symptoms of a heart attack. Every hospital in America has laboratory tests and EKGs which can diagnose a heart attack.
It should be impossible for a person to come to a hospital in this country with a heart attack and not get help.
Yet people die needlessly every year because doctors and nurses missed a heart attack that was happening right in front of them. Our lawyers have handled medical malpractice cases in which people were given medication for indigestion and were sent home where they died of a heart attack. We have seen cases where people having a heart attack in an emergency room were ignored for hours until they collapsed. We have represented the family of a man who died of a heart attack in the hospital's parking lot when the nurses and doctors in the emergency room wouldn't help him.
These cases aren't just tragic: they are inexcusable. Nobody should die because a doctor or nurse wouldn't do their job.
Making Things Better
Every doctor and every hospital has medical malpractice insurance that is there to compensate people hurt by their negligence. Families who have been hurt by a failure to diagnose a heart attack are entitled to that insurance. Your family has bills to pay, and often a heart attack victim was the sole support of his family. Your heart attack misdiagnosis case can replace that income, and help your family recover.
Your failure to diagnose malpractice case can also save a life. When you sue a doctor or hospital because they didn't follow basic safety rules, you can be sure that they won't make the same mistake again. Most of our clients come to us for that reason alone: they want to make sure that what happened to them won't happen to another family. We're proud of our clients for standing up for what's right, and we've been proud to help them do it. Together we've saved lives and prevented many, many injuries.
We'd be proud to help you and your family, too.
