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.
