Cardiac Arrest From Personal Injury
Cardiac arrests can come when you least expect them. They can result from years of heart and health issues but they can also be the result of a severe accident. For example, traumatic cardiac arrest can occur in a high-speed auto accident where the victim’s chest strikes the steering wheel or dashboard. Other ways a person can suffer a traumatic cardiac arrest can include:
Slips and falls
After one of these accidents, bruising and chest pain may be normal, but you or your loved one should always seek emergency medical intervention. It is important to keep in mind that traumatic cardiac contusions (which can lead to cardiac arrest) can be difficult to diagnose, and failure to diagnose this injury after an accident can, in some cases, require open heart surgery.

Traumatic cardiac arrest can be devastating for the victim and his/her families. Especially if the accident, which led to the cardiac arrest, was caused by the negligence and/or wrongdoing of another person, it can feel like a great injustice has been served on your loved one’s health and possibly his/her life.
Traumatic Cardiac Arrest
Cardiac arrest is a serious medical emergency that occurs when the heart stops pumping blood throughout the body. Every year, over 300,000 Americans suffer a cardiac arrest outside of the hospital. The immediate cause of cardiac arrest is usually an abnormality in the heart’s rhythm, but in some cases, traumatic cardiac arrest can result from a severe impact or another type of personal injury.
If you or a loved one suffered a cardiac arrest due to the negligence or wrongdoing of another individual (or company), you can seek justice and financial compensation for your damages by calling G. Gray Law today.
