Los Angeles Failure To Diagnose Heart Attack Attorney
Each year, more than 1 million Americans suffer heart attacks. About 460,000 of those heart attacks are fatal, and approximately half of those deaths occur within one hour from the time the symptoms start.
If an individual arrives at the hospital with symptoms of a heart attack, it may be possible to treat the symptoms, limit the damage the heart attack causes and/or minimize the chances of another heart attack occurring. Unfortunately, if medical professionals — such as the staff in an emergency room — fail to identify the symptoms of a heart attack, the individual may suffer serious injuries or die.
The Law Offices of Michael Oran, A.P.C., helps individuals in Los Angeles and throughout Southern California receive the legal care they need after a failure to diagnose a heart attack.
Failure To Recognize Symptoms Of Heart Attacks
One of the most important jobs of medical professionals in emergency rooms is assessing the seriousness of each patient’s symptoms. Patients should be seen by doctors immediately if they show signs of a heart attack, including:
- Chest discomfort or pain
- Jaw pain
- Neck pain
- Back pain
- Arm pain
- Stomach pain
- Shortness of breath
- Light headedness
