Suffered from a Heart Attack That Was Misdiagnosed? Talk to Our Attorneys!

A heart attack misdiagnosis can mean that the patient will not be given the immediate care that a heart attack requires. In too many ERs or on the phone with a patient, a doctor will dismiss the symptoms as digestion problems or anxiety or some other minor ailment. The consequences can mean permanent damage to the heart or a wrongful death.

We trust our doctors—too much in many cases. When a heart attack misdiagnosis causes death or serious injury, talk to a medical malpractice attorney at the law firm of Snyder & Wenner, P.C. in Phoenix.

When symptoms are ignored or misdiagnosed, the patient may die.

Heart attacks are serious, and any symptoms that could mean a heart attack should be carefully examined by medical professionals. Common symptoms include:

  • Chest pain and pressure that feels like a squeezing sensation, burning, or crushing pain
  • Shortness of breath
  • Nausea
  • Sweating
  • Fainting or lightheadedness
  • Arm, shoulder, or back pain

When these symptoms are reported, your doctor or an emergency room team should immediately administer necessary tests and treatments to avoid catastrophic injury or death. Tests include:

  • Electrocardiograms
  • Cardiac enzyme tests
  • Coronary artery disease tests
  • Echocardiograms
  • Stress tests
  • Angiograms
