Maine Failure To Diagnose Heart Disease Lawyers

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

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.
