AMBULANCE INVOLVED IN CAR ACCIDENT WHILE TRANSPORTING PATIENT

Nov 27, 2013 - Car Accidents

Drivers in Pennsylvania understand that incidents could happen while they are on their way to their destination. When a car collision occurs, drivers do not only experience traffic and delays but they also witness emergency vehicles rushing to and from the accident site. Although it is important for emergency crews to tend to accident victims, traffic and high speeds could lead to a crash resulting in additional personal injuries and damages.

An ambulance was involved in a recent car accident in East Norriton. According to preliminary reports, the ambulance was transporting a patient when it collided with a pickup truck at the intersection of New Hope Street and East Johnson Highway at around 11:30 p.m. The crash caused the pickup truck to collide with a utility pole.

Emergency crews arrived at the scene to assess injuries to those involved in the ambulance accident. It was reported that the patient being transported in the ambulance was injured as well as two others. The report indicated that none of the injuries are life-threatening.

The crash remains under investigation and further details have not been given at this time. Following the accident investigation, the cause and fault could be determined. If a driver is at fault, they could be liable for the resulting injuries and damages. An injured party could file a personal injury claim in order to recover compensation for expenses such as medical bills and other damages.

Being involved in an automobile accident can be a very emotional and life-changing event. Not only does a person need to take the time to adequately heal from their injuries, but they are also dealing with financial burdens associated with the crash. Filing for compensation could alleviate some of these hardships.

WHAT OUR CLIENTS ARE SAYING

"Working with this firm was an amazing experience. I worked with Jeremy Puglia and from the very beginning I felt confident that he would do his absolute best for me. He took the time to inform me every step along the way and made me comfortable. Navigating the legal waters is a confusing process and I was grateful that Jeremy was there the whole time. He was great at communicating with me quickly and was flexible about meeting outside of his office. I would highly recommend him and should I have a need for a lawyer in the future, I wouldn't hesitate to contact Jeremy."
