Every day, millions of emergency vehicles transporting patients in need of immediate medical attention travel down roads at high speeds. With their screeching sirens and bright lights, ambulances notify those in the area of their presence, urging a path to be cleared. However, like any other vehicle on the road, ambulances are vulnerable to serious motor vehicle accidents—especially during emergency transports.
Patients and other passengers aboard ambulances have a reasonable expectation of arriving at their destinations safely. If you or a loved one has been injured in an ambulance accident where the paramedic or another driver was at fault, you may have grounds to pursue compensation, and you should speak with an ambulance accident lawyer right away.

Historic Ambulance Accident Recovery
At Arnold & Itkin, we have personal experience with these types of unfortunate accidents. Our personal injury attorneys made Louisiana state history by achieving a $117 million verdict for a woman who sustained serious injuries in an ambulance accident. The victim was seven months pregnant when she began experiencing stomach pains. The ambulance driver assigned to the unit that responded to her call had a track record of poor driving and weak eyesight. After becoming distracted, the driver caused the vehicle to drive into the back of another truck.
Our client suffered multiple serious injuries including permanent paralysis and gave birth to her daughter prematurely. At the time of the verdict, her medical bills had already amounted to $1.4 million and future care was predicted to reach $30 million. We successfully held the insurance company liable, gaining a historical verdict for our client.
