When seconds can mean the difference between life and death, an ambulance can provide vital assistance, transporting the critically injured to the nearest emergency room or hospital. This commonly means that ambulance drivers need to exceed the speed limit, run stop signs and red lights, weave through traffic and engage in other dangerous driving habits.
These risky and unpredictable maneuvers can make ambulances – and the vehicles they share the road with – highly vulnerable to accidents. Ironically, this can result in ambulances actually causing injuries and harm, rather than helping those who have been hurt.
At the Amaro Law Firm, our lawyers work with ambulance accident victims to help them seek justice and recover from their injuries.
