Our client suffered a heart attack while on a commercial airplane flying overseas. He needed oxygen but the oxygen bottles on the plane were empty. Rather than deviating and landing so he could receive necessary medical care, the plane stayed on its course, landing hours later. Our client survived, but sustained serious irreversible damage to his heart muscle. We sued the airline for failing to give him proper medical treatment for his inflight medical emergency and/or make an emergency landing.
We sued in federal court and the airline and its insurer agreed to a multi-million dollar settlement.Back to Case Results
