Heart Attack Misdiagnosis

Complications Caused by Misdiagnosis of a Heart Condition

Most of us take the best care of our bodies as we can within the constraints of our busy lives. We watch our diets and food intake, avoid harmful behaviors and exercise regularly so that we can enjoy many long years with our family and loved ones. Even with this special care, you may be at risk for a heart attack simply because of genetics. Without thorough and professional medical attention, the symptoms of a heart attack can be overlooked or misdiagnosed, putting you at even more significant risk for injury or death. If you or a family member has been a victim of a heart attack misdiagnosis, find out more about protecting your legal interests by contacting a personal injury attorney as soon as possible.

Each person displays certain symptoms during a heart attack. Sometimes these symptoms can be overlooked because they are milder than expected or they are attributed to another ailment. Not everyone has the chest pain associated with a heart attack; instead, a heart attack may also present with symptoms such as fatigue, dizziness, indigestion, sweating or shortness of breath. Without skilled and proper medical attention, these symptoms can lead to even further damage to your body including permanent damage to your heart, stroke, embolism, aneurysm, heart failure and wrongful death.
