You now know that your heart attack was misdiagnosed.  As much as you’d like to, you can’t go back and undo the harm that has been caused to you and your family.  That does not mean, however, that you are powerless.  You have rights, and it is important to understand and to exercise those rights.

You Have the Right to Know What Happened to You as a Result of the Misdiagnosis.  It is important to be seen by a doctor, other than the one who misdiagnosed your heart attack.  Ask the doctor about your symptoms and injuries.  What would have been different if you had been properly diagnosed?  How did the first doctor’s failure to diagnose a heart attack impact your health, your prognosis and your quality of life?

You Have the Right to Seek Damages for Your Injuries.  It is also important to consult with an experienced Atlanta medical malpractice attorney.  If you have been harmed by a Georgia doctor or hospital, then the Atlanta and Alpharetta medical malpractice lawyers of the Dover Law Firm will protect your right to seek damages for your medical expenses, rehabilitation expenses, out of pocket expenses, lost income, pain and suffering.
