Heart Disease is the Leading Cause of Death in Americans

Thousands of people needlessly suffer, and even die, from complications due to heart conditions because of physician, hospital or paramedic errors. Medical malpractice can occur when a doctor acts negligently and a patient is seriously harmed as a result. Improper treatment, wrong medication, wrong dosage, misdiagnosis, delayed treatment or the wrong surgical technique can lead to serious consequences.

Failure to Diagnosis and Treat Heart Conditions Will Lead to Health Risks

The treatment of patients with serious heart conditions and cardiac problems is crucial. Medical accuracy and thorough knowledge of cardiac procedures, medications, and surgical options is necessary for patients to receive proper care.

A medical professional's mistake can result in heart attacks, strokes, and even sudden cardiac death. Such a circumstance is considered medical malpractice.

Cases of Cardiac Negligence

Without an appropriate diagnosis and plan of treatment, serious symptoms of certain heart conditions may develop and lead to dire consequences. If a medical professional fails to meet the standard of care in order to properly treat a patient and leaves such conditions untreated, stroke, heart attack, or even death may occur as a result.

The following are some heart conditions that are frequently the cause of medical malpractice due to the negligence of medical professionals where they misdiagnose, fail to diagnose, fail to properly treat, use poor medical judgment, or botch a procedure that can potentially lead to serious injury or death:

  • Coronary Artery Stents
  • Coronary Artery Bypass Surgery
  • Myocardial Infarction (Heart Attack)
  • Congestive Heart Failure
  • Missed Aortic Dissections
  • Arrhythmias
  • Coumadin Treatment
  • Valvular Heart Disease
