Failure to Diagnose Heart Attacks and Wrongful Death
Failure to respond to the serious symptoms of a heart attack can result in severe injury, heart damage and, in the worst cases, death.

Risk Factors for Heart Attacks
In addition to identifying the immediate symptoms of heart attack, doctors, cardiologists and other professionals should be aware of potential risk factors, including age, medical history, high cholesterol, obesity, hypertension, alcoholism and diabetes. Doctors are responsible for reviewing medical history and should respond appropriately when patients have one or more risk factors in their medical history. If you feel that a doctor or medical professional negligently responded, resulting in injury or death, our lawyers can protect your rights. We will aggressively pursue your claim to maximize compensation for your loss.
