PRODUCT LIABILITY/MEDICAL MALPRACTICE/WRONGFUL DEATH
Our client went to an imaging center to get an MRI taken of his back. He had an underlying anxiety disorder that the healthcare providers at the center were fully aware of. The technologist put him into the machine once and he panicked. The technologist pulled him out of the machine, but then breached the standard of care by putting him back in, at which time he had a full blown panic attack and went into cardiac arrest. Unfortunately, the technologist didn’t know how to do CPR and the center didn’t have other essential life saving devices on hand. Our client suffered an anoxic brain injury and ultimately death, leaving behind his heartbroken wife.
