Did your doctor fail to diagnose your heart attack?

Los Angeles Medical Malpractice Attorney

When a doctor fails to properly diagnose the medical condition of their patients, it can lead to further injury, illness, or even death. We rely on doctors for their medical expertise and we entrust our lives to them every day. If a doctor does not properly diagnose the medical condition, they cannot administer proper treatment to the patient. If you or a loved one has suffered an injury, illness, condition or loss of life because the doctor at the time failed to diagnose that you or your loved one was having a heart attack, contact a Los Angeles medical malpractice attorney from our firm today.

When a doctor makes such a grave error, he or she needs to be held responsible. If legal recourse is not pursued, they will have no deterrent from making future errors. You may have a medical malpractice claim. To find out more, visit our Frequently Asked Questions page and contact our firm as soon as possible. A failure to diagnose a heart attack can lead to death, and if it is determined that the cause of the death was the health provider, they may be held liable for the wrongful death of your loved one. Medical malpractice is more common than you may realize, which is why it is important for you to contact an attorney to discuss your case. We can help you determine if you have a viable claim against the medical professionals that were on the scene at the time the heart attack occurred, or afterward when treatment was being sought.
