Ambulance Liability

Ambulance Injury Lawyers in Connecticut


Ambulance Liability Claims

In an emergency, we expect qualified, experienced paramedics and Emergency Medical Technicians (EMTs) to respond. Unfortunately, ambulance companies and personnel do not always follow the regulations set forth to keep patients safe. The Connecticut ambulance injury attorneys at Carter Mario Law Firm can help if negligence or carelessness results in a preventable injury.

Standards for Ambulance Response

Ambulance companies and their personnel, including paramedics and EMTs, are required by law to follow certain standards.

Under Connecticut law, those standards and guidelines include:

  • Proper Vehicle Repair/Maintenance
  • Appropriate Equipment/Medications
  • Delivery of Patient Information
  • Medical Equipment in Working Order
  • Proper Assessment of Condition
  • Appropriate Care Provided to Patient
  • Proper Communications
  • Proper Education/Qualifications
  • Proper Care Provided En-Route
  • Proper Patient Transportation
  • Timely Delivery of Patient
  • Timely Response to Calls

Connecticut law mandates minimum equipment for ambulances and emergency vehicles be present and in proper working order. These include oxygen administration apparatus and supply, suction apparatus, resuscitation equipment, blood-pressure cuffs, and fire extinguishers.

What Are Your Rights?

When an ambulance company or its personnel fail to follow regulations or acts and abide by the professional standard of care, this can cause permanent injury to a patient. In these instances, a case for medical malpractice may be filed. The Connecticut ambulance injury lawyers at Carter Mario Law Firm would be happy to answer any questions.
