Cardiac Injury Compensation

Cardiovascular disease, more commonly known as heart disease, is Australia’s biggest killer. According to The Heart Foundation, one Australian has a heart attack every 10 minutes, and coronary heart disease claims the life of one Australian every 28 minutes.


What constitutes a cardiac injury?

The word “cardiac” means related to the heart, and a cardiac injury is any injury that affects the heart. A cardiac injury caused by medical negligence or malpractice could be due to a delayed diagnosis of a hole in the heart or mismanagement of a patient’s heart health during surgery. It could also be heart attack misdiagnosis due to the fact that, for example, heart attack symptoms in women and heart attack symptoms in men can differ. For instance, women’s symptoms can sometimes be harder to recognise. Read more information about the symptoms here.

When is someone else at fault?

A medical practitioner or facility is at fault when medical treatment is not provided to the standard expected. For example, when a heart attack is misdiagnosed, or there was a delay in treatment or another failure to treat the condition adequately.
