Impending Heart Attack Misdiagnosed by Doctor Pays $425,000

Amount: $425,000
Court: Cuyahoga County Court of Common Pleas
Plaintiff’s Counsel: William S. Jacobson & David M. Paris

Decedent had many risk factors for coronary artery disease. He developed chest pain, went to emergency room, and was admitted under his family doctor’s service for cardiac workup and stress test. Decedent checked himself out against medical advice before the workup. His family doctor rescheduled the stress test for nine days later. On the sixth day, decedent again developed chest pain, saw his doctor, and was told he had a muscle strain. Decedent was found dead the next morning. No autopsy. Plaintiff’s experts opined that the defendant physician should have admitted decedent instead of diagnosing the condition as a muscle strain.
