About AED Personal Injury Cases
Often, families who suffered the loss of a loved one due to sudden cardiac arrest or heart attack find that talking to a lawyer isn’t a priority. But for those who have experienced a fatal heart attack or SCA in a public place, the chances for survival are greatly increased if an Automated External Defibrillator (AED) is used swiftly and properly, and companies and the owners of buildings can be held liable if their AED wasn’t available when it should have been, or if it was not functioning correctly.
Many people do not realize just how effective and efficient these devises are at saving lives. A common scenario of liability arises when they are malfunctioning or defective. A relatively new technology, AEDs are particularly susceptible to product defects related to the manufacturing of the device or its components, or related to a lack of required attentive, regular maintenance on the device.
