In fact, their attorneys recently settled a medical malpractice case that entailed the wrong insertion of an IV, resulting in death. The incident happened to a man in his fifties who was not feeling well due to a recent change in his medication.
The man was accepted into the emergency room and was diagnosed with low blood pressure. In an attempt to lower his blood pressure, IV fluids were inserted into his body. The patient complained of pain and appeared to be restless. A CT scan was performed and showed that a significant amount of air was in his vascular system and his heart. After the scan was conducted, the man went into cardiac arrest and passed away.
The autopsy report determined that the man died from an air embolism, which concluded that air must have been introduced during the IV administration. In the end, the man's family was awarded compensation for the case, which was won by the attorneys of Gershon, Willoughby, Getz & Smith, LLC.
