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.
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.
