Heart Disease / Heart Attack Diagnostic Errors & Medical Malpractice

Cardiac conditions can pose an urgent danger to patients and must be diagnosed and treated quickly. When they aren’t, patients may face risks of suffering serious medical setbacks or death.

In many cases involving diagnostic errors and heart disease/heart attack, a patient may seek medical treatment or visit an emergency room with symptoms that warrant further evaluation (including chest or arm pain, nausea, dizziness, fatigue, cold sweats, or shortness of breath) and may be indicative of cardiac conditions such as:

  • Heart attack (myocardial infarction)
  • Coronary artery disease
  • Heart infections
  • Congestive heart failure
  • Arrhythmia
  • Aortic aneurysms
  • Valvular heart disease.

Instead of being appropriately tested and screened for heart-related conditions, providers treating patients who present with these symptoms may fail to take proper steps toward diagnosing a patient’s problem or may misdiagnose a patient’s condition as some other innocuous issue, such as acid reflux.

    "David worked our case with professionalism and patience in an amazing way that ultimately led to a positive outcome."
    Right from the very beginning of our case, David Skall and his assistant Jean Witt were both extremely kind and compassionate to help us put closure on a wrongful death case involving my father at a care facility. They were quick to answer any questions that we had and they made sure we were kept in the loop of this entire process. even though we were in the middle of a pandemic, David and his team were able to adapt their technology and make it all work out for our benefit. I would strongly recommend them to anyone in need of legal help.
