Medical Malpractice Attorney Representing Heart Attack Victims And Their Families
Emergency room doctors are called upon to treat a variety of medical conditions in a hurried and stressful environment. Physicians who work in this pressure-filled area need to take pains to diagnose and treat potentially life-threatening conditions very quickly. Sadly, many emergency room doctors do a poor job of diagnosing heart attacks because of this expedited atmosphere.
If you have suffered a heart attack that an emergency room doctor failed to diagnose or if you have a family member who died because his or her heart attack was not diagnosed and treated in an emergency room, you may have a case of malpractice against the medical provider.

Should My Emergency Room Doctor Have Been Able To Diagnose My Heart Attack?
Because they are under financial pressure to treat a large number of patients, many emergency room doctors cannot spend enough time with each patient to diagnose conditions such as a heart attack. For example, following a tennis match, a patient may experience pain when lifting his arm above his head. However, not knowing the medical history of the patient, the emergency room doctor may diagnose the pain as a symptom of shoulder injury, not a heart attack.
Medical malpractice lawsuits can help hold emergency rooms accountable to order appropriate tests to diagnose heart attacks and other life-threatening conditions.
