Miami Heart Attack Lawyer
One of the most common medical negligence claims is the failure to timely recognize, diagnose or treat an impending heart attack.
The problem is more common than many people realize, in part because there is no foolproof test for detecting heart troubles. In fact, about 2 percent of all cardiac events are misdiagnosed, according to a report by the New England Journal of Medicine.
Chest pain is one of the most obvious symptoms of a heart attack, and it normally raises a red flag for doctors. But other symptoms of an impending heart attack are mistaken for other conditions, including:
- Shortness of breath
- Discomfort in the stomach, neck, back, jaw or arms
The law firm of Kenneth J. Bush, P.A., in Coral Gables, Florida, advocates on behalf of victims of medical malpractice, including the misdiagnosis of a heart attack.
