Heart Attack Misdiagnosis

Heart attack misdiagnosis is one of the most common types of medical malpractice lawsuits. Heart attacks must be diagnosed and treated as quickly as possible in order to improve chances of survival. Sadly, they are a leading cause of death in the US.

Heart attacks are frequently mistaken for fairly innocuous ailments with similar symptoms such as panic attacks or indigestion. If you or someone you love has been the victim of heart attack misdiagnosis by a negligent doctor or nurse practitioner, contact a Cincinnati personal injury lawyer at Stepleton Dugan, LLC by calling 513-321-7733 to discuss your legal options today.

Signs of a Heart Attack

It is important to know some of the most common symptoms of heart attack so that you can be aware of what is happening to you or someone you love if he or she is experiencing one. Common warning signs of a heart attack include:

  • Discomfort in the chest that may last for a few minutes and then come and go (This symptom is often confused with indigestion.)
  • Uncomfortable pressure, squeezing or pain-this pain is typically felt in the upper part of the body such as the back, in one or both arms or in the stomach
  • Shortness of breath with or without discomfort in the chest
  • Nausea
  • Lightheadedness
  • Cold sweat

Knowledge is very important when it comes to fighting against medical misdiagnosis.
