The Orange County California medical transport accident lawyers have been helping injured people for over three decades. We have seen every possible type of ambulance accident and negligent transport accident. We have represented injured patients who were in the ambulance or van that was reckless and people who were hit by the medical transport while it was driving recklessly. California does allow ambulances to have certain leeway and abilities when they are going to an accident or driving to the hospital or emergency room but there are very sound limits. Other types of medical transports do not have the same leeway and they need to follow the rules of the road. They are not allowed to overstep the emergency bounds and they certainly do not have the right to cause accidents, hit pedestrians, or drive irresponsibly.

The top-notch lawyers at DiMarco | Araujo | Montevideo have handled medical transport accident cases for over thirty years and understand your current situation. Many in the area consider us to be the best medical transport lawyers in Orange County. We can help you through the complicated and sometimes daunting task of filing an insurance claim and we will represent you throughout a lawsuit. We are aware of the techniques used by insurance companies to often influence a victim into settling too quickly and accepting less compensation than ultimately deserved.

Standard Duty of Care

The law is very clear as to what lengths one must go to if they are entrusted with the care of another. It doesn’t matter if someone is disabled, elderly, frail, in a wheelchair, injured or sick, they deserve the best treatment possible. The California Book of Standard Civil Jury Instructions has a written set of laws for the duty of care for common carriers. “Common carriers must carry passengers and property safely. Common carriers must use the highest care and the vigilance of a very cautious person. They must do all that human care, vigilance, and foresight reasonably can do under the circumstances to avoid harm to passengers and property. (CACI 902).

There is more than in the instructions that is specifically regarding disabled passengers: When the common carrier voluntarily accepts the passenger and is aware of that passenger’s condition, they must use as much additional care as is reasonably necessary to ensure the passenger’s safety. (CACI 904).” These two sections alone show just how much the California courts care about protecting the rights of people who have been hurt in medical transport accidents.

Types of Medical Transport Injuries

Sadly, many people get injured every year while receiving medical help or being transported. Other than the above-mentioned ambulance accidents, this includes the following types of accidents and injuries and more:

  • Getting into or out of a wheelchair after or before the transportation;
  • While in a van for a nursing home, hospice, hospital, dialysis treatment, doctor’s appointment, or physical therapy appointment;
  • Accidents due to not being properly or completely secured into a wheelchair van, ambulance, stretcher, or backboard; and
  • Slip and trip falls and accidents.
