EMT and Paramedic Malpractice
If you are involved in an accident and are injured you may need the aid of an emergency medical technician (EMT), paramedic and ambulance. It is implied that these medical para-professionals will render a very high level of care, treat any life threatening injuries and transport you to the hospital or emergency room safely. Unfortunately, this is not always the case and you may suffer injuries due to their negligence or carelessness. These injuries are in addition to any injuries already suffered in the initial accident. If you have been injured by an EMT or paramedic you may be entitled to medical benefits and financial compensation. It is a wise move for you to consult with a skilled Delaware EMT And Paramedic Malpractice Attorney.
