Strokes & Heart Attacks

No fee unless we win
we work hard for you

Medical research shows heart attacks and strokes cause more deaths in the United States than any other illness or accident. Heart disease and other leading causes of heart issues are prevalent in the US, and poor health in general plagues many American citizens. Cardiovascular disease is a major concern in every city, and doctors promise to monitor the health of their patients to ensure their own heart issues don’t go undetected, untreated, or misdiagnosed. Unfortunately, medical malpractice happens every day, and many victims of malpractice pay with their health.

What is a Heart Attack?

The National Institutes of Health defines a heart attacks as, “a heart that can’t get oxygen,” and it typically occurs when the oxygen-rich blood flow to the heart is suddenly blocked, which prevents the oxygen from entering the heart. Heart attacks kill many people, and they severely affect the overall health and lives of others. The symptoms of a heart attack might include the following:

– Tightness in the chest
– Discomfort in the neck
– Shortness of breath
– Dizziness
– Fatigue
– Vomiting
– Shooting pain in the left arm
– Pain the area between a person’s shoulder blades
– Heartburn
– A feeling of clenching in the chest

There are various symptoms of heart attacks many people suffer from. Most victims of a heart attack experience at least one or two symptoms prior to the onset of a heart attack, and others don’t. In some cases, the victim might suffer from the sudden and overwhelming feeling that something awful is about to occur, and doom is imminent.

What is a Stroke?

A stroke is similar to a heart attack in that it requires blood flow to become interrupted, but this time it must be interrupted in the brain. The brain requires blood flow to function properly, and strokes occur when blockage elsewhere in the body slows or completely stops the flow of blood to the brain. The most common stroke symptoms include:

– Sudden change in speech
– Severe headache
– Facial numbness
– Hypertension
– Nausea
– Vomiting
– Paralysis on only one side of the body
– Fainting

Medical professionals encourage the public to look for four things when a stroke occurs. F.A.S.T. is the acronym, and it’s recommended you call for medical help immediately if you notice these four signs.

– F for facial drooping on one side of the face
– A for arm weakness or numbness
– S for speech slurring or sudden in ability to speak at all
– T is for time to call for emergency medical help

Heart Attack, Stroke, and Medical Malpractice

Many people are unaware their heart attack or stroke could be the fault of their medical practitioner. Cardiovascular disease is so prevalent in the US that doctors are required to look for very specific health conditions and signs that a stroke or heart attack is likely to occur. These conditions and signs increase a person’s risk of stroke or heart attack significantly, and misdiagnosis or mistreatment can cause these health issues to occur sooner rather than later.

In many patient’s lives, the simple management of cardiovascular health issues can save their lives and prevent a stroke or heart attack. Health issues such as the following are all treatable, and they’re all warning signs of an impending heart attack or stroke:

– Obesity
– High blood pressure
– High cholesterol
– Smoking
– Poor diet
– Diabetes

Each one is treatable, and each one leads to more dangerous health issues. If a medical practitioner fails to diagnose a patient with one or more of the above issues, it goes untreated. If it goes untreated and a patient suffers a stroke or heart attack, legal recourse becomes an option. If, for example, a doctor fails to recommend a healthy diet, exercise plan, and the warnings that go along with it to their obese patients with the warning that heart attack or stroke could occur if they fail to make those changes, they become liable for the patient’s health issues.

Doctors take an oath stating they’ll perform their medical duties in a manner that meets the professional standard of care. Failing to do so leaves them liable for the health of a patient. If you suffered from a heart attack or stroke and your doctor is guilty of any of the following, it could mean you have a malpractice lawsuit on your hands.

– Failure to diagnose a health issue
– Misdiagnosis
– Error in treatment
– Nursing errors
– Anesthesia errors
– Medication errors
– Negligence in any other capacity

Negligence comes in various forms, and it’s the difference between life and death. Heart attacks and strokes are more easily treated now than they have been in the past, which means patients stand a good chance of surviving even if one occurs. It’s even easier than ever to diagnose a heart attack or stroke, which means they should occur less often in patients with signs and symptoms.

Doctors are overworked, overtired, and under-staffed in many facilities, and this often leads to misdiagnosis and rushed patient visits. Patients are more likely to walk out of the office with severe abdominal pain diagnosed as gas only to suffer a heart attack the following day. The effects of a stroke or heart attack are severe. Many patients don’t live, and many who do spend the rest of their lives suffering. Becoming the victim of a needless heart attack or stroke could cause a patient to develop dementia, to develop partial or severe paralysis, or to require rehabilitation or round-the-clock medical care from this point forward. The financial effects of this type of issue are ongoing, and they’re often unaffordable for the average family.

If you or a loved one suffered from a heart attack or stroke because of the negligence of a medical professional, you might be entitled to compensation. When a reasonable standard of care is not provided to patients, our attorneys can help you seek the compensation you deserve to cover medical bills, loss of wages, and pain and suffering. Doctors have a responsibility to care for their patients, and our attorneys have the responsibility to help families who’ve suffered because of their doctors. Let us hep you fight for the compensation you deserve if malpractice occurs. Your family deserves the financial peace of mind if lifelong medical care is needed, as well as to cover the exorbitant medical costs and loss of wages associated with severe medical conditions.
