Are You the Victim of a Cardiology Error?

Heart disease manifests itself through signs and symptoms that should be apparent to a competent doctor. Chest pain, shortness of breath on exertion, nausea, sweating, dizziness, and pain in the left arm are telltale signs of a heart issue that requires timely treatment. When a doctor fails to identify or treat these symptoms, a patient could suffer a potentially deadly heart attack, leading to further health issues or the patient’s death.

Do not wait to contact us – every day you wait could be the last day you have to file a medical malpractice claim under Florida law.

Common Cardiology Errors

Doctors and hospitals can err in a number of ways in cardiology cases. Many cardiology errors stem from the following:

  • Failure to diagnose
  • Misdiagnosing a condition
  • Failing to correctly manage treatment
  • Making a mistake during surgery
  • Improperly managing a patient’s medication

Some heart attacks occur when patients do not receive the preventative treatment they need due to a medical misdiagnosis. This can occur when a doctor fails to order timely laboratory testing and imaging studies which can identify a potential problem. When adequate diagnostic measures are not taken for a cardiac issue, the patient or his or her family may file a lawsuit seeking compensation for damages.

Another common cause of injury and death among cardiology patients is negligence during or after heart surgery. These types of procedures often require a disruption of blood flow. If not managed properly, a doctor could inadvertently cause paralysis or death. After the procedure, physicians and nurses must closely monitor their patients for any signs that a blood vessel is leaking, which can cause the patient’s heart to stop beating or the patient to bleed to death.
