Freeths - Law firm


Getting to the heart of the matter

What is involved?

Most heart conditions and cardiac operations are successfully managed, but sometimes things go wrong. Mistakes may lead to a patient suffering unnecessary pain or, at the other end of the scale, brain damage, serious injury and even death. We will work with you to get the support you need, whether it is care or rehabilitation, and help claim compensation for medical mismanagement or misdiagnosis.

We are experienced in claims relating to late or misdiagnosis and treatment of heart defects, high blood pressure, ischaemic heart disease (including heart attacks and angina), abnormal heart rhythms, or a failure to anticipate heart failure. We can also help with problems with pacemakers or surgical errors.

Claims may also arise around misinterpretation of test results, or even appropriate tests not being carried out at all. In this area of medicine, prompt diagnosis and treatment is paramount.

It is possible that complications can result in a need for long term care, potentially for the rest of the patient’s life. Failures to treat your heart problem could have serious consequences – not being able to work or support your family, not being able to progress in your career, or not being able to enjoy your life to the full. Our nationally recognised clinical negligence team are experienced in putting people at ease and we understand that the last thing you need is more stress.
