Heart Attack Lawyers
Do you feel your loved one’s heart attack could have been prevented with quick lifesaving measures? If a person suffers a heart attack in a public place and an automated external defibrillator (AED) was not provided or was used incorrectly, you may have a case for wrongful death. Although AED state laws make it illegal for certain types of businesses to go without an AED on-site, countless lives are lost each year due to disregard of these laws.
Determining if You Have a Case
If you just lost a parent or a spouse due to a heart attack, you are not alone. Attorney Richard Hastings evaluates hundreds of cases annually, talking to family members of heart attack victims around the country who are dealing with an unexpected death. In many of these situations, our attorney team is able to investigate the circumstances and discover that a law was violated. If we determine that you have a right to damages from a negligent property owner, we will lead you step-by-step through the legal process to ensure you are compensated for medical bills, death and funeral costs, lost income and benefits, and even pain and suffering.
If you feel you may have a case for wrongful death, time is of the essence. Our skilled heart attack lawyers can help you start a comprehensive investigation of your situation and inform you of your rights. Following through with a wrongful death case won’t erase the pain of losing your loved one, but it will help you avoid financial downfall and encourage higher standards of pubic safety.
Medical Malpractice and Wrongful Death
A family physician or emergency room doctor may be held responsible for failing to recognize signs of a heart attack. We handle many cases where the victim was sent home or treated for another condition, only to experience fatal heart or brain damage that could have been prevented with proper medical attention. In both AED negligence cases and failure to diagnose heart attack cases, we ask that family members save all medical documentation for use during your case, including physical exam reports, medication information, and testing and treatment details.
