Failure to Diagnose Heart Attack

Arizona and San Diego Heart Attack Misdiagnosis Lawyers

If an Arizona or San Diego physician’s failure to correctly diagnose a heart attack worsened your medical condition or caused the wrongful death of a loved one, you have rights that must be protected.

Experienced medical malpractice attorneys of The Mercaldo Law Firm in Arizona and San Diego can help.

Cardiac problems present an urgent situation for patients. Heart problems must be diagnosed and treated in a timely manner. When doctors respond with a substandard level of care and fail to recognize the warning signs of a heart attack, patients can suffer serious setbacks that are often fatal.

If you or a family member has suffered because of failure to diagnose a heart attack, the attorneys with the Mercaldo Law Firm aggressively safeguard your interests with an in-depth investigation of medical malpractice, negotiation with insurers and in courts of law.  Our jury verdicts in this practice area have made us some of the top litigating attorneys in Arizona and San Diego.

Some doctors have been known to confuse symptoms such as chest pain, shortness of breath and heavy perspiration for indigestion or acid reflux. A younger or female patient may not fit the typical pattern of a heart attack victim, so that possibility may be overlooked. The patient is then left with lack of treatment for his or her true medical problem, leaving him or her vulnerable to heart attack or stroke — even death.

The Attorneys with the Mercaldo Law Firm are skilled, forceful personal injury litigators with professional connections to cardiology experts who assist us in preparing successful cases for our Arizona and San Diego medical malpractice clients. If The Mercaldo Law Firm accepts your case, we are fully prepared to work hard for losses you have suffered due to misdiagnosis, failure to diagnose or delayed diagnosis of heart attack.
