Air Ambulance and Helicopter Crash Liability

Air ambulances are the ambulance equivalent to air travel and are designed for the purpose of expediting the transfer of a patient or injured party to a hospital. Air ambulances or medi-vac are a life saving resort for many who are in need of immediate transport, however sometimes the service can lead to serious injuries for the victims and crew. Air ambulances can crash causing death or permanent injuries.

Accidents are caused by improper maintenance or pilot error during take-off and the competitive nature of the industry can lead to over sight with regards to maintenance of the helicopter and proper personnel training.

Another potential cause of these accidents can also include helicopter defects. So, who is liable?

Without a doubt, the air ambulance team has a duty to safely transport their patients to hospitals to ensure that they get the treatment that they need. These air ambulance teams are normally private companies (just like the normal ambulances that we are used to seeing on the road). These companies must ensure that their pilots and medical professionals on board have the proper credentials and training, for instance. Unfortunately, even if the air ambulance team does everything right, incidents can still occur. Helicopter mechanics and helicopter maintenance crews, for instance, can breach their duty of care and negligently cause issues that could lead to incidents. The companies that manufacture these helicopters, which have a duty of care that their products are free of any defects that could compromise the safety of the product, could also breach their duty of care and lead to incidents.

All of these parties could potentially face liability for the harm resulting from helicopter accidents. To discuss your specific situation and get a better understanding of liability as it applies to your case, do not hesitate to seek legal assistance with the experts at our law firm immediately.

Air Ambulance Accident Injuries

Those in need of air ambulance transportation are already severely injured. Any air ambulance incident, no matter how minor, could severely complicate existing injuries. In addition to making existing injuries worse, helicopter accidents could also potentially lead to the following: head injuries; traumatic brain injuries; complex neck and back injuries; spinal cord injuries; crushing injuries; nerve and ligament injuries; severe burns; severed limbs. These injuries, without a doubt, can be fatal especially for those who are already in critical condition and in need of airlifting to a hospital.

If you have been involved in an air ambulance contact our attorneys at Downtown LA Law for a free case evaluation. Air ambulance transports are often misused and improperly ordered for patients, thus a patient or party who is injured during transport should not have been dispatched using that method of transportation. Air transports are to be reserved for those who need immediate medical attention in situation where there is serious blood loss related to a sudden loss of a limb or trauma caused by serious accidents. However, many times such transports are requested when no medical emergency exists. Our air ambulance or medi-vac attorneys can assess your case and determine whether you have a case without any cost to you. No recovery no fee!

Air Ambulance Crash Statistics

Air ambulance helicopters have one of the worst aviation records, with a number of crashes which lead to fatalities and other related injuries. According to reports fatalities attributed to helicopter or air ambulance crashes exceeds that of professions such as deep sea fishing. Air ambulance accidents can be attributed to a number of causes, which include:

  • Pilot error, where the pilot miscalculates landing or take off or fails to act in a manner consistent or required by his or her profession;
  • Inspection or maintenance error, when the crew or maintenance department fails to take adequate measures to determine whether the helicopter is safe for take-off;
  • Manufacturer defect, where the manufacturer of the aircraft or helicopter fails to implement or use a more feasible design which would have avoided the crash or harm; or
  • Weather conditions, which would impair the pilots ability to make a proper transport or pickup.

As a passenger you are considered to be a negligent free passenger. A passenger who is being transported via ambulance is not responsible for any injury which occurs during that transport. In fact ambulance carriers are required to make sure that they are driven safely to the nearest ER.
