If an Ambulance Takes a Long Time to Arrive, Is That Negligence?

The ambulance took 20 minutes to get here. Is that negligence?

It could be, but many factors need to be evaluated, including the location of the emergency, routing of 9-1-1 calls, and which service is responsible to respond to 9-1-1 calls.

To investigate this type of claim, our Connecticut Auto Accident Lawyers obtain timed recordings of 911 calls; evaluate 911 service areas; first responder assignments; and travel routes.

The ambulance crashed with a car while I was in it causing even worse injury. Can I file a claim for this accident?

Yes. You should be compensated for the injuries caused by the collision. Depending on who was at fault for the accident, you could recover from either the ambulance company or the driver of the other vehicle. The Connecticut Auto Accident Attorneys with Carter Mario Law Firm wish anyone injured in an accident a speedy recovery and asks that motorists do their part to keep one another safe by always watching out for ambulances as they approach.
