Heart Attack Personal Injury

With 250,000 Americans dying from sudden heart attacks each year, this is an important topic. The state of New York has laws in place, “Automatic External Defibrillator” liability laws, addressing the need for a fast response to sudden heart attacks in public places.

How AED Laws are Saving Lives of Personal Injury Victims

The “Automated External Defibrillator” or “AED”, a portable lifesaving device, allows trained non-medical personnel to treat a heart attack victim immediately, preventing as many as 50,000 deaths each year. This means, for example, that a trained employee of a retail store could potentially save the life of an individual who experiences sudden cardiac arrest while shopping in the store. It’s easy to see the enormous potential of the AED in saving lives and also the risks of having no AED on site.

The requirement by law to keep an AED available varies drastically from state to state. On the Federal level, AEDs are required to be present and maintained in all Federal buildings, which may include courthouses, post offices, and airports.

In New York, several laws have been enacted to require AEDs to be present in certain public places. Under certain conditions, places that might be required to have an AED on site might include:

  • Restaurants
  • Bars
  • Theaters
  • Health clubs
  • Schools
  • Nursing homes
  • Senior centers
  • Golf courses
  • Airports
  • Sports stadiums
  • Gyms
  • Arenas

If you or a loved one suffered sudden cardiac arrest in a public place in New York, with no AED on site, might an AED have prevented further injury or death? If so, you may be entitled to compensation.

If you or a loved one suffered sudden cardiac arrest in a public place in New York with an improperly maintained or malfunctioning AED on site, might a properly functioning AED have prevented further injury or death? If so, you may be entitled to compensation.
