Non-Emergency Medical Transport Accidents

medical transport accident

Medical transport companies provide non-emergency transportation to patients needing some form of assistance such as the elderly, sick or disabled. A medical transport can be used to take people to a variety of services including:

  • A doctor's visit
  • X-rays
  • Dialysis appointments
  • Therapy visits
  • Other medical treatments

Because most medical transport companies advertise and accept payment for their services, under Tennessee law, they will usually be characterized as a "common carrier". Common carriers owe their clients the highest degree of care. This high duty of care extends to almost all aspects of the transport service. Because medical transports are providing services to people who are already sick or injured, it is especially important for them to keep their equipment in good condition and to employ well-trained, conscientious staff.

Medical transport patients can be involved in several types of accidents including:

  • A collision with another vehicle or object
  • Accidents from insufficiently secured wheelchairs or stretchers
  • Accidents from improperly used chair lifts
  • Injuries from patients being left in extreme or unsafe conditions
  • Accidents during unloading or loading of a wheelchair or stretcher
  • Accidents while the patient is transferring to a wheelchair or stretcher
  • And many others
