What are the most common forms of cardiology malpractice in Texas?
Cardiologists can commit malpractice by taking a wide range of careless actions. The following are some of the most common issues that warrant legal action against cardiologists in the Lonestar State:
- Diagnosis errors, including failing to diagnose a heart issue timely, incorrectly diagnosing such an issue (like a heart attack), or failing to diagnose a heart issue altogether.
- Failing to examine medical records before making medical decisions, or failing to adequately document medical history as it occurs.
- Making errors during heart surgery, such as wrong-site surgeries or leaving surgical instruments inside of a patient’s body.
- Immediately moving to the most drastic course of action, such as open heart surgery, instead of taking a more conservative approach to start.
If you have experienced any of these forms of medical malpractice, please reach out to a skilled Harris County, Texas medical malpractice lawyer as soon as possible.
