Ambulance Every day in Buffalo, New York, and throughout the country, emergency medical technicians (EMTs) are responsible for providing urgent medical treatment in life-threatening situations. Some of the most vital care that a patient receives takes place in the minutes following a health crisis or traumatic accident. Without highly trained emergency medical technicians, some patients would not even make it to the hospital for further treatment. Nobody can dispute that emergency service providers have intense and demanding careers. Sadly, sometimes stressful situations can result in tragic mishaps, such as patient drops. When medical technicians are too focused on rushing patients to emergency rooms, they may ignore proper handling techniques and other crucial safety measures. Anytime emergency medical technicians irresponsibly perform their duties, patients being transported can end up suffering devastating injuries or worse.

Suppose that you, or an elderly relative, were being transported by ambulance and the emergency medical technicians dropped you. In that case, it is crucial to contact the Dietrich Law Firm P.C.’s battle-tested patient drop lawyers. Patients who require transport from EMTs are usually already enduring various health-related problems. Being dropped can easily aggravate any existing health concerns as well as lead to additional problems and injuries. For example, while being transported by ambulance, an elderly male was dropped on his side. The impact of the fall resulted in the patient breaking his hip. Consequently, he was confined to bed for over 6 weeks, during which time the patient died from pneumonia. It is not uncommon for drop victims, especially the elderly, to be bedridden at the hospital for days or weeks. The Dietrich Law Firm P.C. acknowledges that drop injuries could have earth-shattering consequences for your health and well-being.
