When a Heart Attack Has Been Misdiagnosed
During a heart attack, each passing moment means a greater risk of death. It is critical to get immediate care in order to save the life of the patient. When care is delayed, the results can be disastrous. The resulting harm is especially difficult to accept when that delay is caused by a healthcare provider's misdiagnosis.
At the Law Offices of Raymond J. Slomski, P.C., our team of lawyers and support staff represent people throughout Arizona who have been harmed by heart attack misdiagnosis. Often, these are victims who find their lives permanently impaired. Sometimes, our clients are the surviving families of people who were not diagnosed in time to save their lives.
Since 1988, our law firm has achieved approximately $80 million dollars in jury verdicts and favorable settlements for victims of serious personal injury and medical malpractice. As experienced lawyers, we know that health care providers must adhere to a strict professional standard of care. In a cardiac arrest case, this means properly reacting to chest pain symptoms, running specific tests and administering treatment to head off damage to the heart, or even death.
