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.

We can discuss your case, and if we agree to handle your claim, we only receive payment when we recover a monetary award in your favor.

As an Atlanta Attorney I have known Cale Conley personally for nearly 20 years. I first heard about Cale through other lawyers, who talked about his remarkable skill and great results as a trial attorney. When I finally had the chance to refer a case to Cale and work with him as a colleague, I was blown away by the level of his professionalism, knowledge and skill. Over the past few years I have referred several clients with large and complex cases to Cale and his firm and have been extremely impressed with the results he has obtained! In my opinion, Cale is one of the best Attorneys in the United States. Not just in Atlanta or Georgia, but anywhere. I am totally confident in referring any case or client to him. Not only is he a great attorney, he and his firm and partners take good care of clients and care deeply about them. If I could give Cale and his firm more than 5-Stars I would.

I had the pleasure of trying a very complicated products liability case with Cale Conley and Davis Popper. They and their entire office are fantastic, and I could not recommend them more highly. The entire process, from the time that we brought them in to work with us, through the course of the case and trial, was seamless. Cale, Richard, Rance, and Davis are some of the finest trial lawyers in the Country, and I look forward to working with them on future cases.
