Improper CPR

An Experienced Drowning Lawyer Can Help Your Family

Improperly administered CPR is not any better than no CPR at all. In fact, those who tried to perform CPR on cardiac-arrest victims did it incorrectly more than half the time, reducing a victim's already small chance of surviving. The rate of survival for victims where the CPR was done improperly is only one-third that of victims given proper CPR. Clearly, the proper use of CPR can be the difference between life and death. If you suspect improper lifeguard training or a negligent error on the part of a CPR provider is responsible for an injury or death in your family, let an experienced drowning accident attorney at The Doan Law Firm, P.C. relieve some of your distress by determining what your legal options are.

Complications of Improper CPR

Even if a victim does survive cardiac arrest despite poorly performed CPR, there can still be other complications. Rib or sternum fractures are a common problem, especially for children and the elderly. If far too much pressure is administered during chest compressions and a rib bone breaks, it can even puncture a lung or the liver. Sometimes pressure builds up in the body during chest compressions causing the victim to vomit. This creates a risk of aspiration, which can lead to dangerous complications such as lung tissue damage or pneumonia.

Turn to a Drowning Lawyer to Protect Your Rights

Injuries such as these due to improper CPR can make healing and recovery from a near-drowning accident more difficult. As a former Deputy Beach Patrol Supervisor, Attorney Jimmy Doan knows the CPR training requirements for lifeguards and other safety personnel. The Doan Law Firm, P.C. has the experience needed to determine if the lack of proper training or negligence in adhering to the American Heart Association CPR guidelines have been responsible for unnecessary injury or death. If you or a loved one has been impacted by a drowning death or CPR injury, you need a skilled and compassionate drowning attorney to pursue the appropriate compensation.
