Litigate to Obtain the Highest Possible Compensation for Victims Severely Injured in Patient Transport Mishaps in Syracuse, New York.

Wheelchair Health ComplicationsWhen coping with incapacitating injuries or health complications, it may not be possible for some patients to drive or even request a rideshare pickup. They must instead rely on medical transport vans and ambulettes to go to their doctor’s appointments. The elderly, wheelchair-bound individuals, and those living with certain disabilities are also forced to depend on medical transport services. M&A Mobility Medical Transportation and Suburban Transportation are among the many medical transportation companies that service Upstate New York. Countless patients and their families trust non-emergency medical transportation (NEMT) to get them to and from their destinations safely.

Regretfully, far too many elderly and other vulnerable patients have been seriously injured by the same companies that are supposed to be helping them. In one case, a patient was dropped on the ground when he was being taken out of the van. In another instance, a fragile dialysis patient was thrown to the ground because his wheelchair was not properly secured in the ambulette. Undoubtedly, these types of accidents can cause crushing injuries and even fatalities for patients who are already in agonizing pain or too weak to move. When it comes to patient transport injury claims, the bottom line is that many of these mishaps could have easily been avoided. For this reason, it is vital to contact a medical transport accident injury attorney if you, or someone close to you, has suffered any harm while being medically transported.

Top Causes Of Medical Transport Mishaps

Medical TransportDrivers and caregivers employed by medical transport companies are entrusted with the task of getting passengers to and from their destinations safe and sound. This means that the staff members are usually responsible for door-to-door assistance. As such, patients place their trust in the medical transport companies and employees to reach their intended destinations unharmed. With numerous trips being made every single day, it should come as no surprise that mishaps involving ambulette passengers can happen. Below are several examples of ways that medical transport service negligence can hurt patients:

  1. Patients that are dropped while being loaded or unloaded;
  2. Transport drivers making abrupt turns or slamming on the breaks;
  3. Car crashes due to distracted or irresponsible ambulette drivers;
  4. Caregivers neglecting patient’s medical needs;
  5. Failing to report patient injuries;
  6. Neglecting to strap passengers in their seats;
  7. Improper use of wheelchair lifts;
  8. Failing to properly secure wheelchairs inside of the ambulette;
  9. Incidents involving caregivers imprudently moving patients; and
  10. Drivers or caregivers inadequately trained in handling patients.



How Can The Dietrich Law Firm Support Your Claim?

Medical transportation companies have a legal responsibility to be attentive and cautious, not only when handling patients but also when inspecting and servicing their equipment.
