Heart Attack Misdiagnosis

Proven New York Medical Malpractice Lawyers

When you enter a hospital or other medical care facility with heart attack symptoms like numbness in the extremities and/or chest pain, you deserve proper medical care. These can be signs of serious conditions and many heart attacks, when not properly addressed, can be fatal.

Appropriate medical care for a patient experiencing heart attack symptoms can include:

  • A one-on-one consultation with a doctor
  • An EKG test
  • A stress test. Stress tests are generally performed on a treadmill and measure your heart activity when your heart is operating at a level similar to that which is achieved while shoveling snow or running.

If your medical care provider failed to detect a heart attack and instead sent you home with a diagnosis of heartburn, GERD (gastroesophageal reflux disease), or another ailment, you may have a valid claim for medical malpractice.
