Common Injuries Suffered By Ambulance Drop Victims

When an ambulance is required to transport a patient, it is generally because that person is already injured or undergoing a medical emergency. Consequently, the injuries caused by dropping a patient that already has medical problems can be extremely overwhelming. In many instances, when the drop happens, patients are positioned awkwardly and elevated off the ground. Not to mention, incapacitated patients are completely defenseless and unable to break their falls. Even when victims are dropped from relatively low heights, they can suffer the following injuries:

  1. Abrasions and bruising;
  2. Dislocated joints and torn ligaments;
  3. Internal organ damage;
  4. Facial damage, such as broken noses, orbital fractures, and chipped teeth;
  5. Hip, femur, and tailbone fractures;
  6. Broken hands, wrists, arms, feet, and legs as a result of trying to break the fall;
  7. Assorted neck and back injuries;
  8. Complete paralysis;
  9. Traumatic brain injuries (TBI); and
  10. Wrongful death.

Although a patient will likely survive being dropped, the incident could lead to a dramatic decrease in his or her quality of life. Victims unfortunate enough to undergo serious drops may need several surgeries and lengthy physical rehabilitation just to recover. Additionally, older and more frail victims face higher risks of suffering life-long disabilities and deadly complications.
