Medical Malpractice

An irregular heartbeat, also known as arrhythmia, can spell doom for the individual suffering from it, as it may be a sign of a cardiovascular issue that may morph into the formation of blood clots or heart attacks. A pacemaker is a small device that is implanted just under the collarbone that helps in normalizing an individuals’ heartbeat, thereby reducing or eliminating the risk of cardiovascular complications later on in life. It is estimated that close to 200,000 pacemakers are implanted in the U.S. every year, which is a telling sign of the rise in cardiovascular issues that face Americans that are over a certain age. Pacemakers can be life-saving and necessary in some cases, but they can also become a death trap if they weren’t properly installed or there was an element of negligence when they were installed by a surgeon. It is important to understand that you have rights when a doctor negligently installs these devices, and you may be able to file a lawsuit to recover money damages for the same, and we’re here to help with that.
