Failure To Diagnose Heart Conditions

According to a report by the American Heart Association, heart disease kills more than 2,500 Americans per day. Sadly, some of these fatalities could be prevented if the condition were diagnosed and treated in time.

Attorney Steven J. Weinberg is passionate about helping those harmed by medical malpractice, including failure to diagnose heart conditions. He will work relentlessly to support you in your fight to receive financial compensation for the needless suffering you have endured. This includes emotional suffering, if you lost a loved one to a heart condition that could have been treated if it had been diagnosed in time.

With 39 years of experience, Mr. Weinberg has helped California clients secure multimillion-dollar verdicts and settlements.

Mr. Weinberg handles cases involving:

  • Failure to diagnose heart disease
  • Failure to recognize heart attack symptoms (myocardial infarctions)
  • Failure to order appropriate tests such as blood work or an electrocardiogram (EKG)
  • Failure to recommend a pacemaker or defibrillator when appropriate
  • Failure to correctly prescribe blood thinners such as warfarin or heparin

Standing Up To The Insurance Companies And Their Numerous Lawyers

Cases involving failure to diagnose are typically very complex and expensive. Doctors, hospitals and clinics carry malpractice insurance that protects them when they are accused of any form of negligence. The insurance companies provide attorneys to defend against these malpractice claims, so negotiating with the insurance companies and their lawyers prior to trial is an important part of the process.

Mr. Weinberg has earned the respect of his peers and opposing counsel. He is adept at working with — or litigating against — the insurance companies to seek full financial compensation for his clients.
