We often get calls about these types of lawsuits. The typical complaints are that the ambulance company did not show up fast enough or when they did they did not do the proper things.
In Maryland, our Courts have set a very high level of proof in order to be able to bring a lawsuit against a municipal ambulance company. Someone must show that there was almost malicious intent to harm the patient. There are cases where a patient was not strapped down tightly and was seriously injured when the ambulance driver took a turn too fast. Although the driver was negligent, the Court found that negligence was not enough.
There are exceptions to this rule but this blog is meant to provide the general law on this subject.
