Failure To Diagnose Heart Attacks & Strokes


Springfield Failure to Diagnose a Stroke Attorneys

Headaches and chest tightness may be caused by everyday stress — or they could indicate a serious heart condition. It is up to the cardiovascular specialist to properly determine the true nature of the phenomenon. If the physician fails to diagnose a blood clot or a constriction in an artery leading to the heart, life-endangering complications could result.
