Non-Emergency Medical Transportation companies in Las Vegas, such as Nevada MediCar, MediCoach, HealthTrans and other companies often employ inexperienced and untrained drivers. When accidents occur during transportation of medical patients, disabled individuals, their family members, nurses, staff, security guards, or others, the results can be detrimental.
Emergency Medical Transporters, including ambulances of companies such as American Medical Response (AMR), MedicWest Ambulance, Mercy Ambulance and others have to follow specific procedures and regulations in order to avoid injuring their passengers and passengers of other vehicles on the road. Failure to do so often results in serious life threatening injuries or deaths on public roads.
Drivers of such vehicles also have a duty to properly secure patients and carry patients in and out of the vehicle safely without dropping them. If you were dropped by paramedics or drivers carrying you in or out of a medical transportation vehicle, contact Ramzy Ladah at Ladah Law Firm, PLLC today for a free consultation.
Drivers of Ambulances and Non-Emergency medical vehicles often drive recklessly and erratically, resulting in injuries to passengers.

When these drivers are in a hurry, or when the company is under staffed and over worked, the drivers can make careless errors resulting in serious injuries. Drivers often fail to properly restrain passengers, including wheelchair bound patients, resulting in falls or collisions within the vehicle. Drivers also often cause serious collisions or accidents with other vehicles.
