In a decision last week by Maryland's Court of Special Appeals, the Court was faced with the issue as to whether Maryland law precluded a lawsuit against TransCare, a private ambulance company.
Under Maryland law, firefighters and rescue operators employed by municipalities are immune from suit and are protected by the Maryland Fire and Rescue Act.
In this case, TransCare argued that this protection should also apply to private companies. The Court disagreed with TransCare and decided that private ambulance companies are not protected under Maryland law.
