Strokes & Heart Attacks
Stroke And Heart Attack Attorneys
Two of the most commonly misdiagnosed and undiagnosed medical conditions are heart attacks and strokes. All too often, doctors jump to conclusions and diagnose these conditions as something far less severe. The patient then leaves the doctor’s office or emergency room, only to be struck down by the full force of the condition. In these cases, the victims of heart attacks and strokes may be able to file a medical malpractice claim against the negligent doctor with the help of an experienced attorney.
How Could The Stroke Or Heart Attack Have Been Prevented?
At Kampf, Schiavone & Associates, we have been handling these types of misdiagnosis and failure to diagnose claims since 1985. We have recovered compensation for many victims of medical negligence in San Bernardino and throughout California’s Inland Empire. We are well-versed in the mistakes that doctors make and how they could be prevented.
Doctors are trained to do a complete review based on all symptoms present. If the symptoms of a severe condition like heart attack or stroke are present, they should consider those conditions a possibility, even if it seems unlikely. They should not just jump to the conclusion that the heart attack symptoms are the result of indigestion or the stroke symptoms are just a headache. They need to do a thorough work up to eliminate the possibility that the patient has a severe medical condition before diagnosing it as a lesser condition.
When doctors fail to do a complete work up, or they fail to have proper testing done or fail to analyze test results correctly, they may be held accountable for the damage that occurs because of the failure to treat a stroke or heart attack in its early stages. Our lawyers are committed to getting results in these complex and challenging cases.
