Understanding cardiac conditions and negligence

Cardiology is the branch of medicine that deals with disorders of the heart and cardiovascular system. Negligence in this area includes the failure of healthcare professionals to provide the standard of care expected in the diagnosis, treatment, or management of heart-related conditions. The consequences of such negligence can be severe and result in life-threatening or even fatal complications. These failures could include:

  • missed diagnosis of heart conditions
  • mismanagement of heart disease
  • heart surgery errors
  • failings in identifying and treating low blood pressure (hypotension) and high blood pressure (hypertension)
  • avoidable heart failure
  • mismanagement of heart attack (myocardial infarction)
  • brain damage resulting from cardiology errors
  • mismanagement of Venous Thromboembolism (VTE) or Deep Vein Thrombosis (DVT)

Women may be particularly prone to suffering poorer medical care for certain heart conditions due to long-standing issues with a lack of research and understanding of aspects of female health.

Your rights and eligibility

If you or a loved one has experienced a delayed diagnosis or inappropriate treatment of a cardiac condition, you have a legal right to understand what may have happened. If it’s found that your healthcare providers acted negligently, you could be entitled to compensation to help alleviate the financial challenges you have been burdened with as a result.

How can compensation help?

In the unfortunate event that medical professionals let you down, seeking compensation can help you recover physically, emotionally, and financially. These could include

  • healthcare costs
  • rehabilitation & therapy
  • lost income & future earnings
  • long term care needs such as a carer or support worker
  • adaptive equipment and home modifications
  • counselling

In the devastating event that you have lost a loved one because of the negligent care they received, a claim can help you meet the needs of their dependents. It can also shine a light on what happened and help prevent the same mistakes being repeated to someone else.

Choosing a cardiology medical negligence lawyer

A specialist solicitor will be able  to secure the best outcome for you in a medical negligence case not just in terms of the level of compensation, but because they can connect you with the best help to put your life back together.

Every claim is different because every individual’s experience is different, but our extensive medical negligence knowledge means we know what to look for and how best to help you. We have excellent cardiology contacts. That helps us to work with you to create a case that has the best supporting expert evidence and to link you to top healthcare and rehabilitative support.

Making a claim with us is not just about finances. We work with you to understand the impact of what you have been through and to help you identify and obtain the help and care you need to live as full a life as possible despite what you have been through.

We understand that you may also be keen to understand more about what went wrong in your case, perhaps to seek an apology and to ensure the same thing does not happen to someone else.

In cases affecting those who have mental capacity issues, either pre-existing before cardiology negligence or as a result of it, our dual expertise in this area means we can offer all the support necessary.

Cardiology medical negligence FAQs

Serious cardiology negligence claims can result in compensation of hundreds of thousands of pounds or sometimes even millions. The size of damages is based in part on how much harm has been done to an individual and the costs associated with helping them get back on their feet following that harm.
