Non-Emergency Medical Transportation

Many people rely on medical transportation for routine doctor visits and therapy. These services have customized vehicles that can transport wheelchairs and help those with disabilities get to their destination. Unfortunately, there are many non-emergency medical transportation (NEMT) companies that may hire unqualified, untrained workers or use poor equipment to save money that can result in car accidents. Negligence by the drivers, personnel or unsafe equipment can put riders in danger of injury.

Injuries Caused by NEMT

There are many things that can go wrong during NEMT when the proper methods and equipment are not used. Elderly, disabled and ill passengers depend on NEMT to provide safe transport, but there have been many instances where passengers are injured during their ride. Some of the injuries that can occur include:

  • Injuries caused from equipment failure
  • Injuries from improper methods using chair lifts
  • Leaving a passenger in vehicle in extreme weather
  • Loading or unloading accidents
  • Not securing patient inside the vehicle
  • Vehicle crashes

When these types of injuries occur, the NEMT company can be liable. They must carry insurance to cover accidents and injuries to passengers. However, if injuries are caused by gross negligence, a lawsuit may be necessary to prove the charges and receive compensation to cover medical costs and other damages.

Dwayne L. Brown and his legal team look at all the angles in complicated cases like NEMT lawsuits. They research whether the employees were properly trained and if the equipment was maintained for safety. If negligence played a part in causing injury to their client, Dwayne L. Brown and his team work diligently to uncover the evidence to build a solid case against the NEMT company.

    Rafiq A.

    My family and I met Attorney Dwayne Brown after the unfortunate accident involving my niece. Attorney Brown did an exceptional job representing my family. He was the consummate professional, and treated my family with the utmost dignity and respect. As a result of his representation, my family was able to achieve a substantial settlement in our case. Although we obviously did not get our loved back, we are prayerful that we met Attorney Brown. My family would highly recommend Attorney Brown to anyone in a similar situation.

    An excellent and professional lawyer. He took on a car accident case on my behalf, worked with me from across the country, and was just as vigorous in his pursuit of justice on day 912 as he was on day 1.

Attorney Brown resolved my case to my absolute satisfaction and did an excellent job. I highly recommend his services.
