Cardiac or Heart Malpractice

Heart and Cardiac Surgery Malpractice Cases in Los Angeles

The number one reason for death of Americans is heart disease. There are certainly people who are at risk for disease because of their high blood pressure, high cholesterol, diabetes, a long history with smoking, and even those over 65. These are not the only people who suffer from injuries and fatalities relating to heart surgery. The failure to recognize and treat a patient or physician and paramedic errors can lead to heart attack or complications.

Heart surgery can save a person’s life, but if mistakes are made by surgeons or their staff, serious harm can be done. If you were injured during surgery or have lost a loved one because of a mistake in heart surgery, you likely have a medical malpractice claim.

Protecting Your Rights & Wellbeing

Heart surgeries are very sensitive operations and must be treated as such. If the procedures are not conducted perfectly, disaster can ensue. Some of the serious injuries that can be caused are as follows:

  • Hematomas: Failing to apply the correct amount of pressure after a catheterization often results in hematomas. These can require further surgery.
  • Infection: Heart surgery carries a risk of infection. If correct procedures are not followed, or if an infection is not identified and treated, there are serious consequences.
