When a heart attack is diagnosed and treated promptly in its early stages, the patient may make a full recovery and go on to live a normal life. However, when the misdiagnosis of a heart attack occurs, or when a medical professional fails to diagnose a heart attack altogether, the results can be catastrophic and even fatal.

Holding Doctors Accountable For Emergency Room Errors
Emergency rooms can be chaotic. However, doctors and other medical staff are highly trained to deal with the cases that come into a hospital. Time is a crucial factor in these cases, and when doctors and medical professionals fail to recognize the symptoms of a heart attack, the eventual damage to the heart can be much worse than if the problem was treated right away.
When doctors fail to follow the accepted standards of care when it comes to diagnosing a patient, they may be guilty of medical malpractice. Our lawyers have extensive experience handling these types of cases. We will thoroughly investigate the situation that harmed you or your loved one and identify the responsible parties, and we will work hard to hold them accountable and to help you recover the compensation you deserve.
Compassionate Representation In Fatal Medical Malpractice Cases
Unfortunately for some people, the delayed or missed diagnosis of a heart attack may prove to be fatal. In these cases, our attorneys can help surviving family members pursue a wrongful death claim against the negligent parties. We understand that there is nothing that can make up for your loss. However, we can help send a message to medical providers that reckless actions will not be tolerated in Ohio.
