Late Treatment of Heart Attack

When it comes to heart attacks, timing is everything

With the number of people who experience heart attacks every year in the U.S., you would think that hospitals and doctors have the experience and skills to properly recognize and treat a heart attack patient. But often, when clear-cut signs of a heart attack are not present, a doctor will overlook a family history of heart disease and other health issues such as high cholesterol and stress. As a result, failure to properly diagnose/treat heart attacks has become the basis of a large percentage of medical malpractice cases today.

At Elk & Elk Co., Ltd., we know time is muscle when it comes to heart attack treatment. But every year, thousands of heart attack patients suffer serious complications or even death after being improperly treated by medical personnel.

If you or someone you love received substandard care after a heart attack and suffered serious consequences as a result, contact the lawyers at Elk & Elk to see if you have rights to compensation. Call 419-408-9431 to schedule a free consultation.
