Compensation claims for failed treatment in an ambulance
If you are in need of emergency treatment then chances are you will likely end up in the back of an ambulance. Designed to carry an injured person to hospital for immediate treatment, ambulances save thousands of lives each year, and in many cases the treatment that you receive in the back of an ambulance can be a big contributor towards your end condition. In many cases this treatment can have a major impact on your chances of survival.
Although in most situations you will receive the best possible care that you can in the back of an ambulance, this is not always the case, and if you feel that you have suffered from negligence here then you may be considering a compensation claim.
WHO COULD HAVE BEEN RESPONSIBLE FOR AN ERROR OF THIS TYPE?
If you have made a mistake here then there are a number of people that you could claim against, but in general you will look to claim against the paramedics or anyone who has been treating you on the scene of an accident. Paramedics are highly trained professionals who can make split second decisions about your health, although in the majority of situations these are for the better of your health, unfortunately in some cases they are not, and in this situation you could look to make a claim.
WHAT ARE SOME EXAMPLES OF COMPENSATION CLAIMS I COULD MAKE?
If you are considering a claim for compensation there are a number of different situations which you might look to take into account, some of these include:
- Claims for failure to administer appropriate treatment
- Claims for injuries sustained while being transported in an ambulance
- Claims for injuries caused by poorly trained staff
- Claims for the lack of appropriate equipment
- Claims for faulty or poorly maintained equipment
