Medical malpractice cases involving heart attacks come in a variety of shapes and sizes. We can handle all of them, including those that involve:

  • A patient who goes to an emergency room with chest pains, only to be turned away due to failure to diagnose a heart attack
  • A patient with warning signs of a heart attack, such as an irregular heartbeat, who is not provided anticoagulants to prevent a medical emergency

Like heart attack cases, pulmonary embolism cases can come in many forms, from those that could have been prevented if not for a doctor’s misdiagnosis to those that are directly caused by negligence. Examples include:

  • A doctor fails to recognize blood clots that formed while a patient was traveling by air, and the clot leads to a pulmonary embolism.
  • A doctor fails to provide anticoagulants, even though a patient has shown warning signs of pulmonary embolism, such as trouble breathing or other lung issues.

Even if you are not aware of specifically what caused a heart attack or pulmonary embolism, but you feel medical malpractice was involved, our team knows how to carefully examine every case.
