Private Ambulance Negligence Injuries

Ambulance Accident Attorney Cleveland

Our law firm is experienced with private ambulance accident cases and we have been representing victims of medical transfer injuries for over 20 years. A medical transfer / private ambulance is a wheelchair-accessible van used to transport the disabled or elderly in non-emergency situations. They are typically used by adult day care centers, nursing homes, EMS facilities, hospitals, fire departments, and centers for the developmentally disabled. These vehicles are meant to help people, but many times they are staffed by inexperienced or over-worked employees.

These hazardous conditions lead to unnecessary injuries of the innocent person being transported. If you or a loved one has suffered from an ambulance injury or collision, we are here to help.

Top Causes of Ambulance Injuries:

  • Wheelchair and/or passenger not secured in the vehicle properly with seatbelts. If the vehicle comes to a sudden stop, the wheelchair could shift or passengers could fall over and become injured.
  • Improper use of wheelchair lift causing wheelchairs to fall off when loading or unloading passengers.
  • Leaving passengers unattended.
  • Not following traffic laws.
  • Distracted or reckless employees.
  • Negligence or mistreatment of the passengers.

Ambulance Accidents Require Extensive Investigation

To get to the bottom of exactly how the accident occurred, our law firm always investigates ambulance injuries thoroughly. We look into critical evidence relating to the ambulance itself and the responsible company. This evidence can include: broken seatbelts, malfunctioning chair lifts, negligent employees, and company background history. We use this evidence and investigation to build a strong case in your favor. It is important to contact us soon after the injury has occurred to prevent lost evidence and statements from possible witnesses. We leave no stone unturned in finding out how negligence played a part in the ambulance injury. Our goal is to get you compensation for your damages and hold the responsible parties accountable for their negligent actions.
