Philadelphia Medical Malpractice Attorneys

Over Five Decades of Success

A heart attack, coronary, or myocardial infarction (MI) occurs when a part of the heart muscle is not getting the blood flow or oxygen it needs to survive or work right. If a heart attack, coronary, or myocardial infarction is not diagnosed and treated right away, the heart muscle can become permanently damaged or die.

At The Beasley Firm, our team of exceptional trial lawyers have consistently recovered substantial verdicts and settlements for clients who have needlessly suffered a heart attack. This collective expertise has contributed to our great success in the medical malpractice field. We even hold the record for some of the highest medical malpractice jury verdicts in the state of Pennsylvania-$100 million and $55 million. Our lawyers are recognized across the nation for their hard work, track record of success, and commitment to the client, including inclusion in the list of "Best Law Firms" for medical malpractice.

Since 1958, we have obtained over $2 billion on behalf of our clients. To begin your case, call (215) 866-2424 for a free case evaluation.

Symptoms of a Heart Attack

Most people have a preconceived notion that a person undergoing a heart attack may experience a feeling of something heavy sitting on their chest, crushing chest pain, or the sweats. However, not every heart attack patient experiences those symptoms. A heart attack can present itself in many different ways. Women especially experience a wide variety of heart attack symptoms that present themselves differently than male heart attack symptoms. The nurses and doctors on our medical malpractice team have seen patients who have suffered a heart attack and experienced the following "uncommon" symptoms:

  •   Jaw Pain
  •   Nausea
  •   Thumb Pain
  •   Shoulder Pain
  •   Elbow Pain
  •   Shortness of Breath
  •   Indigestion
  •   Ear Pain

Not every patient just complains of chest pain. The certified emergency room nurses on our legal team have seen thousands of ways patients, just like you or a loved one, can present to the emergency room while having a heart attack or MI.

Heart Attack Warning Signs & Risks

In the emergency room or doctor's office, an EKG or cardiogram is performed to get an inside look into what your heart is doing or not doing. The EKG, ECG, or cardiogram shows if your heart is in distress, not getting enough oxygen, or simply having a heart attack (MI). Many times, the doctors, nurses, or physician's assistants do not see the subtle changes on your EKG that shows you are having an angina attack or heart attack. Angina is a warning sign that you are high risk for developing a heart attack, due to a lack of oxygen to your heart. Many days can pass until a cardiologist reads your cardiogram and sees the potential damage. By that time, the damage may already be done.
