A 44-year-old New York resident, Martin LaPoint, lost his life in February of this year while in the emergency room at the University of Vermont Medical Center. The family has recently filed a medical malpractice lawsuit with the Burlington Federal Court.

According to The Burlington Free Press, the family claims that UVM Medical Center’s staff misdiagnosed LaPoint, who visited the hospital a number of times in February to seek treatment for two extruding spinal discs.

The lawsuit alleges that LaPoint died of a pulmonary embolism, or blood clots in his lungs, after hospital staff wrongly used a compression device to ease a possible blood clot in LaPoint’s legs.
