Brooklyn Medical Transportation Accident Lawyer

Brooklyn Medical Transportation Accident LawyerThe Brooklyn medical transportation accident attorneys at the Law Offices of Jay S. Knispel Personal Injury Lawyers have many years of experience handling all types of auto accident claims, including medical transportation auto accidents.

Medical transportation vehicles, wheelchair vans, and buses, or “ambulettes” are used to transport many different types of people with many different types of disabilities.

They can be used to take residents of nursing homes out on day trips or take people in wheelchairs to a variety of services including:

  • Doctor’s appointments
  • Dialysis
  • X-rays
  • Physical therapy
  • Other medical treatments

Medical Transportation Accident Injuries

These medical transportation vehicles are responsible for getting people who are already injured to some extent to different appointments to help them get better.

It is important that the companies that own these types of vans or buses keep them in good repair and that drivers use whatever safety measures necessary to keep their passengers secure during the trip.

In addition to a collision, other injuries may occur in these types of situations including:

  • Insufficiently secured wheelchairs
  • Patients left in extreme conditions
  • Chair lifts improperly used
  • Inexperience or inattentiveness leading to patients falling from wheelchairs
  • Accidents during loading or unloading wheelchairs or stretchers
  • Inadequately trained drivers or other personnel working with patients in transport

While this list may not involve a collision, there are still grounds for personal injury should a serious injury occur as a result of any of these conditions.

Contact the Brooklyn personal injury attorneys at the Law Offices of Jay S Knispel, LLC immediately should you or a loved one be injured in such a fashion.

Ambulance Medical Transportation Accident

Ambulances have a responsibility to get an injured person to the hospital as fast as possible.  Many times the person inside the vehicle is experiencing a life-threatening situation before even boarding the ambulance.

There are many people on the emergency response team responsible for keeping that person safe and getting to the hospital as quickly as possible.

Emotions run high for the team, and when emotions run high, accidents can occur.

Even if everyone on the emergency response team worked to the best of his or her ability, there are still other drivers, obstacles, and road conditions as challenges to getting to the hospital quickly. Many different things could cause an accident involving an ambulance, such as:

  • Not adequately training a driver
  • Lack of sleep
  • Medication
  • Failure to obey traffic laws

Having to be transported to a hospital via ambulance is stressful in itself, for the patient, and for the loved ones of the patient.

Should an additional accident occur on the way to the hospital, it is extremely important to have competent representation fighting for the rights of the injured party.

The attorneys at the law offices of Jay S Knispel, LLC will help you determine the best course of action based on your specific situation and will help you recover compensation for your injuries.
