Air Medical Transport Company
The plaintiff was involved in a serious accident in which he drove his motorcycle into the back of a slow-moving vehicle, was thrown from his motorcycle, and sustained multiple injuries, including a traumatic brain injury. He was transported via helicopter to a regional hospital for emergency treatment. The plaintiff alleged that our client, the operator of the air medical helicopter and its emergency medical personnel, improperly administered oxygen during the flight causing the plaintiff to sustain an anoxic brain injury. Experts for the defense testified that our clients did not breach the standard of care and that there was no evidence of an anoxic brain injury. After discovery and motion practice, we successfully negotiated a settlement for our client.
