Cardiology Malpractice

Cardiology malpractice refers to a cardiologist error that causes harm to a patient. This can involve misdiagnosing or failing to diagnose a heart condition, surgical errors during a cardiac procedure, or prescribing inappropriate medications that lead to further heart damage.

When a doctor fails to provide their patients with the highest standard of care, serious complications can occur, placing you or a loved one at risk of life-altering injuries, or even death.

What is Cardiology Malpractice 

Heart disease is the leading cause of death in the United States, in both men and women. Therefore, it’s crucial for cardiologists to be extremely attentive to their patients' health. Failing to properly treat patients can lead to a number of unfortunate outcomes that warrant a lawsuit. 

Some common examples of cardiology errors include: 

  • Failing to recognize symptoms of a heart attack or other cardiac event 
  • Misreading test results such as EKGs, echocardiograms, or cardiac catheterizations
  • Performing unnecessary cardiac procedures like stent placements or bypass surgery
  • Perforating heart tissue or blood vessels during surgery
  • Prescribing contraindicated medications

The effects of cardiology malpractice can be severe. A missed heart attack can lead to permanent damage or death. Unneeded surgeries carry serious risks like infection. Medication errors can worsen heart failure or cause irregular heart rhythms.

When a cardiologist acts negligently, individuals suffer both physically and economically.  

Potential Damages From Cardiology Malpractice

If you or someone you love suffered harm under a cardiologist’s care, you may have a medical malpractice claim. Financial compensation could cover:

  • Additional medical treatment to stabilize your condition
  • Rehabilitation services like physical therapy
  • Lost wages from being unable to work
  • Pain and suffering

An attorney can help determine if malpractice occurred, and if you or a loved one's injuries could have been avoided. A strong legal team can help you gain the compensation you deserve.
