Wheelchair TransportationWhen dealing with old age, debilitating injuries, disabilities, illnesses, or other incapacitating health conditions, some individuals lose their ability to walk. As a result, many of these people end up confined to wheelchairs and are unable to drive to doctor’s appointments or even run daily errands. Non-emergency medical transportation services play a central role in reducing wheelchair users’ dependence on family and friends to meet their transportation requirements. Instead, many of those in wheelchairs rely heavily on specially equipped vans, commonly known as ambulettes. The proper use of chair restraints inside these vans is crucial. The passengers’ safety and well-being depend on staff safely locking their wheelchairs into place.

While many wheelchair transport companies provide extremely beneficial services to those in need, an alarming number of disabled passengers suffer shocking injuries or worse in the back of ambulettes. Most of the injuries that passengers suffer result from unsafe or careless handling by wheelchair transport employees. When an ambulette driver slams on the brakes or suddenly turns, passengers in unrestrained wheelchairs can be easily thrown or slammed against the van’s interior. Accidents involving unlocked wheelchairs can lead to crushing injuries, such as broken bones, herniated discs, blunt-force head trauma, and even wrongful death. Passengers fortunate enough to survive are frequently forced to endure long-lasting pain and a significant decline in their health conditions. More extensive injuries often entail multiple surgeries and intense rehabilitation just to stay alive.
