Dallas Ambulance Accident Attorneys
When Ambulance Cause Harm When They're Supposed to Help, Our Team Steps in to Investigate What Happened & Demand Answers
Ambulances are supposed to help people, not hurt them. However, they’re motor vehicles operated by humans who are susceptible to errors, and on roadways where distracted and drunk drivers must be contended with. For these reasons, they are sometimes involved in serious accidents that leave patients and drivers with catastrophic injuries. Our firm represents victims of ambulance accidents caused by:
- Distracted drivers (texting while driving, etc.)
- Drunk and drugged drivers
- Defective ambulance or other auto parts
- Defective or dangerous roadways
- Violations of traffic laws
- Inadequate ambulance maintenance
- Fatigued drivers

Record-Setting $117 Verdict for Client in Ambulance Collision
This story begins with a woman who was seven months pregnant and began experiencing stomach pains. She called for an ambulance. While they were en route to the hospital, the ambulance driver took his eyes off the road for a moment. That was all it took for the ambulance to crash into the back of a sugar cane truck. The woman suffered severe spinal cord and brain injuries, and her daughter had to be prematurely delivered. She would never fully recover and would remain in a wheelchair for life.
Arnold & Itkin took on the case and fought for a $117 million verdict. This verdict ensured our client and her two daughters would receive the care and support they need. This is why our Dallas ambulance accident attorneys do what we do—to help people who are going through the toughest times. We provide the guidance and help that can make all the difference in rebuilding and moving on.
Investigating a Dallas Ambulance Accident
Determining cause is important when our attorneys take on a Dallas ambulance accident case. We need to know what party (or parties) caused the collision to see who should be held responsible for resulting medical bills, lost earnings, emotional trauma, and other damages or losses. We use different methods for investigating a crash depending on the circumstances, but we will typically work with accident reconstruction specialists, investigators, and experts in engineering, medicine, and other fields to paint a clear picture of the circumstances leading up to the collision and the collision itself.
We and our investigators may consider such details and evidence as:
- Witness accounts of the accident
- The scene of the accident, including skid marks, the condition of the road, traffic signs, etc.
- The location and type of damage sustained by all involved vehicles
- The location and type of injury sustained by all victims
- Police reports
- The ambulance’s EDR (event data recorder)
- Ambulance driver and ambulance maintenance logs
