The Consequences of Failure to Diagnose/Treat Heart Disease
Heart disease is among the leading causes of illness and death in the country, which makes the proper treatment of heart conditions of paramount importance. You need to be able to rely on doctors to recognize the warning signs of serious illness, provide dependable treatment and handle complex medical procedures.
At the Pennsylvania law offices of Dallas W. Hartman, P.C., our attorneys are experienced and have a proven record of success that can effectively and aggressively address cases of cardiology malpractice. We understand how a doctor's negligence can impact not just the lives of the injured but their family as well, and we will aggressively pursue your rights.
Helping to Provide Counsel, Guidance and Answers
Most, but not all, cardiology malpractice cases are the result of one of two situations.
- One — A doctor's failure to correctly recognize the symptoms of a heart condition in an emergency room or clinical setting.
- Two — A doctor's failure to make a correct assessment based on EKG readings or stress test results
In both cases, medical malpractice has as much to do with inaction due to a failure to diagnose as any direct actions. While it is certainly true that medication errors and surgical errors can play a role in cardiology malpractice, usually the situation is much more directly the result of negligence or even ignorance.
As an experienced medical malpractice law office, we can put our experience and knowledge to work for you. We understand how to pursue these kinds of cases, because we have been successful for our clients for more than 25 years.
If you have been injured as a result of a physician's action, inaction or negligence, you need to speak with a lawyer about your rights. You can't rely on hospitals or insurance companies to offer answers that expose them to expensive compensation or litigation. Put someone on your side who can help.
