Stroke Diagnosis, Care & Cardiology Clinical Negligence Claims

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.

Negligent Cardiology Treatment

Here are some of the ways that cardiologists have failed in their duty of care or provided negligent treatment:

  • Not conducting the correct diagnostic tests when a patient first complains of chest pain.
  • Failing to diagnose angina for a patient who presented with chest pain.
  • A GP failing to diagnose a heart murmur.
  • Not warning a patient about the risk of cardiac catheterisation.
  • Poor ongoing management of the condition of those who suffer from angina or heart failure, have had a heart attack, or suffer from long-term ischaemic heart disease, cardiac catheterisation, or have had a pacemaker inserted.
  • Failure to correctly analyse an ECG (electrical tracing of the heart) which showed a heart problem, with the condition being misdiagnosed as reflux or some other stomach problem.
  • A GP failing to recognise an infected haematoma following a routine angiogram.
