Pittsburgh Cardiology Malpractice Lawyer
Heart Conditions and Medical Malpractice
Symptoms of heart disease can vary and be caused by other conditions, but failure to diagnose a heart problem can have serious, life-threatening consequences. Many heart attacks and heart conditions can be prevented upon early diagnosis. When medical professionals are negligent and a condition goes untreated, victims may suffer serious and permanent injury, even wrongful death. At Hal Waldman and Associates in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, our attorneys are experienced with complex medical cases in involving cardiology malpractice.
Symptoms of Heart Disease and Misdiagnosis
Symptoms of heart disease include heaviness, pressure, burning or aching in the chest. Other symptoms of heart disease may include shortness of breath, palpitations, a faster heartbeat, weakness or dizziness, nausea and sweating.
