Maryland Injury Lawyers for Stroke and Heart Disease Misdiagnosis
Injured by Misdiagnosis? We’ll Advocate for You!
If a doctor fails to diagnose a stroke or heart disease, the consequences can be devastating for the patient. Should doctors miss out on the chance to act early, the patient’s condition may progress and cause more problems for them in the future.
Have you or someone you love been injured because of a misdiagnosis? You could qualify for compensation under law, such as for your pain and suffering, lost wages due to missed time from work, and medical expenses related to your misdiagnosed condition.

How Do I Know If I Have a Case?
Medical professionals have a duty to their patients to act according to industry standards. This means that they should be able to identify the warning signs of a stroke and heart disease. If they are not qualified to give a formal diagnosis, they are required to at least refer that patient to a specialist who can. Failure to do so is considered medical negligence, or medical malpractice.
Common examples of how medical negligence could lead to misdiagnosis include:
- Failing to order necessary medical tests, screenings, etc.
- Failing to recognize the symptoms of a stroke/heart disease
- Ignoring a patient’s self-reported symptoms that could indicate a stroke/heart disease
- Failing to recommend an at-risk patient to a specialist
- Diagnosing a stroke/heart disease as another medical condition
- Giving an accurate diagnosis but doing so too late, or delayed diagnosis
- Failing to diagnose a stroke/heart disease at all
If your stroke or heart disease was misdiagnosed or incorrectly treated, you may have a case if you suffer an injury, complications, or further injury in the future. “Further injury” may mean you were left to suffer a preventable stroke, heart attack, or other serious adverse event (like cardiac arrest). It may also mean that because of the preventable event, you were left with other injuries like paralysis or brain injury. Stroke and heart disease misdiagnosis may also prove fatal. If you lost a loved one, you may have a wrongful death case.
