If you, or a member of your family, have suffered as a result of negligent cardiac care, you may be able to make a claim for compensation.
Hugh James specialist medical negligence solicitors are experts in dealing with all types of medical negligence including:
Medical negligence claims for these types of problems are often based around misdiagnosis or non diagnosis of the problem.
Unfortunately angina and heart attacks are sometimes diagnosed incorrectly as indigestion or other more minor disorders.
Claims may arise as a result of the correct diagnostic tests not being carried out, for example electrocardiogram (ECG or EKG) tests.
Misinterpretation of test results can also lead to non diagnosis of cardiac problems.
Misdiagnosis or late diagnosis can lead to the patient suffering pain, a worse long term outcome, and possibly even death as a result of the correct treatment not being given at the appropriate time.
Appropriate prioritising of corrective surgery is important to minimise the risk to health.
