More about heart problem claims

Misdiagnosis is a cause of claims about heart problems. A myocardial infarction is often confused with conditions such as angina, bronchitis and oesophagitis. Symptoms of heart problems may be mistakenly ascribed to heartburn or an anxiety attack. This failure to diagnose and therefore treat a heart attack or a potentially fatal cardiac arrhythmia may have very serious consequences.

Whilst treatment is often available such treatments may not reverse any damage already done and other injuries such as paralysis or brain damage can result from that initial misdiagnosis.

More useful information about heart problems can be found on the British Heart Foundation website.

If your injury was a consequence of medical negligence, whether due to misdiagnosis or errors in cardiac surgery, you may be able to make a claim. Damages will aim to help improve quality of life.
