Non-Emergency Medical Transportation Accident Lawsuits

Many individuals need assistance when it comes to transportation for medical care. Disabled, elderly and those with serious health conditions often use non-emergency medical transportation to bring them to doctor appointments and for treatment, relying on these professional services to deliver them safely.

Non-emergency medical transportation is considered a “common carrier” as a type of public transportation. Since the companies are paid for their service and many are for-profit companies, they are expected to use “extraordinary care” when transporting their clients. If an auto accident occurs that injures the passenger, the driver can be found negligent in their duties, and the company may be held liable for damages.

Types of Medical Transport Accidents

Those that use non-emergency medical transport are usually dependent on the driver to ensure their safety. Many passengers are in wheelchairs or have other disabilities. It is expected that these vehicles will have the correct equipment to safely secure passengers and that this equipment will be maintained. Drivers and staff should also be well-trained to use the equipment and assist passengers in and out of the vehicles. Some of the types of medical transport accidents that can occur and injure passengers include:

  • A vehicle collision
  • Wheelchairs improperly secured
  • Chair lift accidents
  • Injuries from passengers left in unsafe environments (left in a hot or cold van)
  • Loading or unloading accidents

Many times, patients or passengers are at the mercy of the medical transport driver. When negligence occurs that injures the patient, the patient and their family have the right to explore legal action against the transport company to recover funds to pay for medical expenses, lost income and pain or suffering.
