Liability In Ambulance Accidents
Ambulance companies tend to have a great deal of immunity for accidents if they are driving for an emergency with their lights and sirens on. If their lights and sirens are not on they have to obey the rules of the road like everyone else. Any person that is injured in an accident with an ambulance may have legal recourse through a bodily injury claim. Damages in a civil claim may include money for lost wages, medical bills and pain and suffering.
