Thank you for all your hard work, I will recommend you to friends and family if they ever need your services.
Chest complaints can be dangerous and possibly life-threatening and medical professionals have a duty of care to investigate the cause of the problem and treat you promptly, referring you to a specialist if necessary. There may be a number of different medics, including your GP, the A&E department, paramedics and ambulance crew, and hospital based specialists known as cardiologists and cardiothoracic surgeons. Examples of negligence involving heart / cardiac conditions: Failure to diagnose heart attack (also known as myocardial infarction)
- Misreading / misinterpreting ECGs
- Failure to administer medication
- Inappropriate medication
Proving a medical negligence case involving cardiac issues:
- Breach of duty: Any medical professional presented with symptoms relating to your heart or chest owes a duty of care to you when they diagnose and treat, or consider referring you for further investigation. We have to prove, with expert evidence, that the standard of care you received fell below that of a reasonable and competent clinician and was therefore negligent.
- Harm: we need to prove that the negligence caused you harm
If your symptoms were overlooked, exposing you to a serious medical episode that caused you harm, get in touch with us. We’ll advise whether you have grounds to make a no win, no fee claim for compensation and help you get the compensation you deserve.
