Countless complications can arise when wheelchair-bound patients are negligently transported to their medical appointments. In many instances, the passengers needing these types of services are handicapped, immobilized, or dealing with other crippling medical conditions. When tragic mishaps occur, disabled or elderly passengers are often incapable of protecting themselves and avoiding injury. The most common injuries that passengers suffer in wheelchair carriage accidents include:
- Lacerations and contusions;
- Torn ligaments and dislocated joints;
- Hip and tailbone fractures;
- Broken wrists, hands, and other bones;
- Internal bleeding and organ damage;
- Herniated and bulging Discs;
- Severe concussions, blunt-force head trauma, and traumatic brain injury;
- Wrongful death; and
- Severe emotional trauma.
While passengers may be fortunate enough to survive, catastrophic accidents like these can cause long-lasting pain and a significant decline in their overall health. The above injuries often require surgeries and lengthy physical therapy sessions just to begin to recover. Not to mention, more delicate wheelchair-bound victims may face elevated risks of suffering further incapacitating and debilitating injuries.

Tips For Finding The Best Wheelchair Carriage Company
Our compassionate attorneys understand that everyone’s medical situation is unique. Typically, finding the right vehicle for someone who is in a wheelchair requires more planning. Depending on your health condition, selecting a service that best fits your needs can be an overwhelming task. Below are some things you should consider when choosing a medical transportation provider:
- Safety: It is crucial to always choose a company that makes you feel safe and secure. The best wheelchair transport services pride themselves on safety first. A reputable company should have no problem offering you information about company hiring practices, safety procedures, and prior mishaps.
- Equipped Vehicles: Long drives can become very tiring and stressful for passengers. Transport companies often use different types of vehicles. Depending on your specific needs, check if the company has the right vehicle, which should be medically configured and fully equipped with all patient care necessities. If televisions, music systems, charging ports, or DVD players are important to you, it may be worth booking a premium service.
- Professional Staff: Staff members are directly responsible for the safety and well-being of all passengers. Both drivers and caretakers should undergo thorough background checks. Additionally, staff must be able to address any medical issues that may arise. At a minimum, they should be trained in first aid procedures, and CPR certified.
- Accredited Company: One of the fastest ways to narrow down your options is to only choose a company that is accredited with the relevant regulatory bodies. Also, be sure to check for Better Business Bureau A+ Rating and five-star Google reviews. This will provide you with a good idea of the standard of services offered by a provider.
