Understanding Standard Of Care

As the first medical professionals on the scene, paramedics and emergency responders play a significant role in protecting injured patients. When medics or emergency medical technicians (EMTs) perform their duties negligently, the consequences can be deadly.

When you call an ambulance, you assume that the emergency responders will have the training and knowledge necessary to address immediate medical needs. The care provided by an EMT is naturally different from the care provided by a nurse, doctor or surgeon. To determine if an emergency worker was negligent, you must understand the standard of care required of professionals in that field.

Our attorneys understand the standards set for paramedics and emergency responders. We have the resources and experience to investigate your situation and determine whether the care provided deviated from the accepted standard.
