Experienced Cardiologist Malpractice Lawyers – File Your Claim HERE
As shocking as it may sound, there are over a MILLION cardiac events in the country each year. Heart disease remains as one of the biggest killers of Americans and individuals around the world, thought to be caused in part by our increasingly sedentary lifestyles and a diet rich in saturated fats which is converted into vessel-clogging cholesterol. It is estimated that individuals that go through a heart attack are more likely to suffer another one, lessening their survival rate with each cardiac event. For this reason, cardiologists must impress upon patients the importance of eating well as well as treat any concerning heart events in a timely manner. Cardiologist malpractice may actually lead to a major cardiac event due to negligence which can let a problem go from a molehill into a mountain. It is however important to understand that your rights are protected under medical malpractice law which is part of personal injury, which makes it possible for you to file a lawsuit if you believe that your heart doctor acted in a negligent manner, consequently causing you health issues, and this is something we can definitely help you with.

In addition, many cardiology errors have been shown to be due to medication issues where doctors prescribe the wrong dose of medication, or the wrong medication altogether. Standard of care is a medical and legal concept that holds physicians accountable for their actions in the sense that they must offer treatment to all their patients at a certain level and ensure that said treatment is similar to what their peers would offer to a patient facing the same health circumstances. Failure to uphold this standard of care will make it possible for you to file a legal claim in order to collect money damages for things such as cost of present and future medical care, lost wages, pain and suffering, legal fees, and so much more.
