Was Your Heart Attack Misdiagnosed?
The misdiagnosis of a heart attack can have fatal consequences. It is essential that doctors, such as emergency room doctors and family physicians, who most often have heart attack victims in front of them are able to clearly identify a heart attack in a timely fashion. Any delay at the beginning of providing care to the patient can result in loss of life or serious lasting injury.
If your heart attack wasn’t promptly and accurately diagnosed, or if you lost a loved one due to an undiagnosed heart attack, please contact Colley Shroyer Abraham in Columbus. Our personal injury lawyers are dedicated to standing up for medical malpractice victims across Ohio. We can fight for accountability and compensation to help you move forward.
Common Heart Attack Symptoms That Get Overlooked
The symptoms of a heart attack can vary in intensity, and they’re often subtle. The signs and symptoms of a heart attack include:
- Chest pain
- Left-arm pain or numbness
- Shortness of breath
- Back pain
- Jaw pain
Overlooked heart attacks are far too common in emergency room settings. If your symptoms are mild, you may get sent home without the care you need. The doctor might fail to look at all pertinent sources of information and diagnostic tools such as EKG, cardiac enzymes and imaging that can check the ejection fraction of your heart.
