Harrisonburg Cardiac Event Injury Lawyer

Representing Victims of Medical Malpractice Throughout Virginia

A cardiac event is a term used to describe a sudden and severe medical condition that affects the heart. These conditions include heart attacks, acute myocardial infarctions (AMI), and strokes. In all cases, a cardiac event can be life-threatening, and if not treated promptly, can cause permanent damage and even death.

What Causes Cardiac Events?

There are many different causes of cardiac events, though most are related to severe stress, physical exertion, or a medical condition. When a cardiac event is caused by a medical condition, it is often the result of that condition being misdiagnosed, improperly treated, or not treated at all -- in other words, medical malpractice.

Some of the most common causes of cardiac events include:

  • Severe trauma, such as a car accident
  • Defective drugs or medical devices
  • Exposure to toxic substances
  • Severe physical exertion
  • Severe emotional stress
  • Medical conditions, including cardiovascular disease, high blood pressure, and high cholesterol
  • Blockages in the arteries
  • Heart valve disease
  • Arrhythmia

In any case, if you believe you suffered a cardiac event due to someone else’s negligence, you should speak to an attorney at Obenshain Law Group as soon as possible. You may have grounds for a personal injury claim.
