Did you know that 20% of all acute medicine involves cardiology? That means a huge amount of procedures are carried out on a daily basis, which has led to a dramatic increase in litigation in recent years.
Of course, thankfully, the vast majority of medical procedures are undertaken successfully by experienced surgeons, but when mistakes are made the consequences can be devastating.
Misdiagnosis or a failure to treat a serious heart condition, by a cardiologist, can lead to severe heart damage, a heart attack, or even death - often due to the patient not receiving the right treatment or diagnosis.
Taking legal action may seem like a daunting prospect, but if you have been a victim of cardiology mistreatment or misdiagnosis, it’s important to consider all the options available to you.
The highly experienced clinical negligence specialists here at Lanyon Bowdler are friendly and approachable and will be able to talk through your case sensitively.
