Failure To Diagnose Heart Disease


If your heart disease was not diagnosed in a timely manner, you may be entitled to compensation

Maine Failure To Diagnose Heart Disease Lawyers

Modern medicine has allowed for tremendous advances in the fight against heart disease, which remains the leading cause of death in America. A variety of effective treatments often allow heart patients to live full, active lives.

But these positive outcomes can only be achieved when doctors and other healthcare professionals recognize the signs and symptoms of heart disease or defects. Heeding these warning signs and directing the patient down the proper path of treatment are the responsibility of healthcare providers.

Unfortunately, doctors sometimes fail to make an accurate or timely diagnosis, and heart disease goes undetected. This can result in stroke, heart attack, even death tragic scenarios that could have been avoided with early intervention.

Berman & Simmons is widely recognized as the best personal injury lawyers in Maine and among the best in the U.S. We have obtained several of the largest medical malpractice jury verdicts in Maine history, and many of the largest settlements for our clients. We have recovered $1 billion for our injured clients.

Medical professionals are expected to follow the standards of care accepted by the members of their profession and specialty. A failure to diagnose heart disease can occur when a physician does not properly investigate, test or follow up to timely diagnose and treat a patient’s condition. Failure to diagnose heart disease is one type of medical malpractice, and patients who have suffered as a result have the right to recover for damages.

Our attorneys understand the medicine and the relevant laws in these cases. We have successfully represented people throughout Maine who have been harmed because of a failure to timely diagnose heart disease and other conditions.

You should also contact us if you lost a loved one to heart disease and believe it should have been diagnosed earlier as you may be eligible to recover damages through a wrongful death claim.
