I am sorry to hear about your heart attack and strokes. Whether or not you have a case really depends upon the records. You should call an attorney right away to get an evaluation of your case started. An attorney who handles medical malpractice cases can have your records reviewed by an expert to determine if the hospital/doctors made a mistake in failing to diagnose your heart attack. Do not wait to call an attorney.
Erik's right. MedMal comes in two flavors, breach of the standard of care, and failure to diagnose. Whether you have failure to diagnose is going to depend upon what symptoms you were presenting with and what was the standard of care for diagnosis when one is presenting with those symptoms. That story is going to be told in your records. Get your records, read them, and take them to an attorney.... Good luck. If this answer was helpful, please mark it helpful.
