Heart Attacks: A Serial Killer of Women

Coronary heart disease (CHD) is the nation’s No.1 killer. A missed heart attack diagnosis is the most common form of medical malpractice, and women are its most common victims. CHD accounts for about 23 percent of all deaths in women.

Stereotypes based on gender affect the kind of medical treatment women with heart disease receive. Medicine is just catching up to the fact that women and men experience CHD differently and require different treatments. Medical malpractice cases based on failure to diagnose or treat a heart attack, particularly those involving women, are legally and medically challenging.

“My daughter was injured during birth when a catheter punctured my womb. She suffered from a loss of blood, and several other mistakes were made before she was finally resuscitated. My mother, who is a nurse, suggested Judy Massong. With her as my attorney, I felt I was in the most experienced hands. With Judy's help, we settled twice, once with the hospital and again with the medical device manufacturer. Judy is as strong as a bulldog, and she always made it her goal to keep us informed and help us find the resolution we needed as a family. We have worked hard on my daughter’s recovery, and as challenging as it can be, she is an affectionate, loving, social, bright little girl.” Julie L.
