At Jane Clark Legal, our team of attorneys has over 35 years of experience handling cases involving medical negligence, specifically failure to diagnose or properly treat heart attacks by medical professionals.

Our heart attack malpractice attorneys understand the complexities of heart attack cases related to medical malpractice, which often occur in emergency rooms or hospitals when healthcare providers fail to meet the expected standard of care in diagnosing, treating, or managing patients experiencing heart attack symptoms.

Heart Attack Medical Malpractice Cases

Our dedicated attorneys have successfully handled various types of medical malpractice cases associated with heart attacks, including:

  • Inadequate monitoring or failure to respond: During a heart attack, timely monitoring and a quick response are vital. Medical malpractice can occur if healthcare professionals fail to properly monitor a patient’s vital signs, fail to recognize deteriorating conditions, or delay initiating necessary interventions such as cardiopulmonary resuscitation (CPR) or defibrillation.
  • Failure to perform necessary tests: If healthcare providers neglect to order or interpret appropriate diagnostic tests, such as electrocardiograms (ECGs), cardiac enzyme tests, or stress tests, it can delay the diagnosis of a heart attack.
  • Medication errors: Mistakes in administering or prescribing medications for heart attack patients, such as incorrect dosages of antiplatelet medications or thrombolytic agents, can result in serious complications or even death.
  • Misdiagnosis or delayed diagnosis: Medical professionals may fail to recognize the signs and symptoms of a heart attack, leading to misdiagnosis or delayed diagnosis. This can result in a delay in providing critical interventions, such as administering clot-busting medications or performing emergency procedures like angioplasty or coronary artery bypass grafting.
  • Surgical errors: In some cases, medical malpractice related to heart attacks can involve surgical errors during procedures like angioplasty, stent placement, or coronary artery bypass surgery. Examples include errors in catheter insertion, incorrect placement of stents, or damage to blood vessels during surgery.
  • Inadequate post-operative care: Proper post-operative care is crucial after heart attack interventions or surgeries. Medical malpractice can occur if healthcare providers fail to monitor the patient’s condition, neglect to provide necessary medications or follow-up appointments, or fail to address potential complications promptly.
