If you have ever had a medical emergency, paramedics and emergency medical technicians (EMTs) were probably the first to arrive on the scene. First responders have a vital role in caring for patients who suffer severe injuries or health problems. They must respond promptly and properly to treat patients. Receiving sufficient treatment from a paramedic can play a significant part in how a patient’s illness or injury turns out and whether they can completely recover. Unfortunately, sometimes patients suffer catastrophic harm because of bad choices made by emergency medical technicians during ambulance calls. Critical mistakes made by paramedics may include taking too long to respond to emergencies, dropping patients during loading or unloading, overlooking life-threatening symptoms while on the way to the hospital, or failing to monitor a patient’s vitals.
In case you, or someone you care about, suffered unnecessary injuries or a failed rescue operation due to paramedic malpractice, you owe it to yourself and your loved ones to find out the truth. Liability issues, insurance complications, and government sovereign immunity can make these types of cases complicated. It can also be extremely challenging to prove what occurred in an ambulance.

In the unfortunate event of a serious accident or medical crisis, patients’ lives depend heavily on competent emergency responders. Paramedics usually arrive at emergencies swiftly and do a great job performing necessary medical procedures to stabilize victims and save lives. Most paramedics are very competent and highly trained professionals. Unfortunately, even the best-trained first responders can still make mistakes. More than 250,000 victims suffer fatalities, and hundreds of thousands more suffer painful injuries due to medical errors. Emergency medical technicians have immense pressure placed on them to treat patients while rushing them to the nearest hospitals. Just imagine trying to stay calm despite the stress of a patient suffering a deadly heart attack. Actions that paramedics take that may be deemed malpractice include:
- Unreasonable Delays: Every second counts when a patient requires emergency medical care. Paramedics must arrive at the scene as soon as possible. Failure to do so could result in a preventable death.
- Misdiagnosing: Emergency medical technicians must be able to diagnose and treat patients until they can transfer them to emergency room doctors. Misdiagnosing the patient’s problem can have life-threatening consequences.
- Failure to Stabilize: Before arriving at the hospital, first responders have to properly stabilize patients. Depending on the situation, stabilizing may involve arranging for evacuation, controlling bleeding, calming patients down, keeping victims warm with blankets, performing cardiopulmonary resuscitation (CPR), treating for shock, or performing vital first aid procedures.
- Medication Errors: Paramedics often need to administer medicine to treat patients. Giving a patient incorrect meds could cause an allergic reaction, various new conditions, severe injury, or even death.

For many dire emergencies, such as severe car accidents, heart attacks, and epileptic seizures, paramedics are the first line to save their patients. All ambulance workers have a legal duty to obey the same set of medical standards that other reasonable first responders would follow in similar situations. When first responders negligently perform their critical duties, it can result in the patient sustaining further difficulties or even death. When this occurs, the emergency personnel may be held liable through a personal injury claim. You may be able to recover monetary compensation for a paramedic’s carelessness by demonstrating that you were owed a professional duty of care, the paramedic’s conduct failed to meet this duty, and the failure caused you to suffer injuries that led to actual damages. For instance, if an emergency medical technician failed to follow patient treatment protocols by checking your grandmother’s airway and missed a fatal obstruction. In most cases, the Dietrich Law Firm P.C.’s battle-tested lawyers will retain expert witnesses to give their opinions about the paramedic’s duty in your particular situation, how they deviated from it, and whether this deviation caused your injuries.
