Holding People Accountable For Accidents Involving Ambulances Or Emergency Vehicles
When we think of police cars, fire trucks and ambulances, we normally think of ways in which they will be used to help people in distress. Emergency responders rush to the scene of an accident, crime or medical crisis with the intention of rescuing people. It is a jarring shock, then, to suffer an injury or witness the death of a family member as a result of a collision with an emergency vehicle.

When Emergency Vehicles Cause Accidents
- Were you injured as a result of a crash with an unmarked police car?
- Did a speeding fire truck or ambulance force your car off the road or into oncoming traffic, causing you to crash with some other car?
- Were you an occupant of a police car or ambulance that was involved in a wreck in the Boston area?
If any of these or similar scenarios apply in your case, you need to talk to an attorney as soon as possible to increase the likelihood that you will be properly compensated for your injuries.
Relax: We Will Deal With The Complex Insurance Issues
As a result of an emergency vehicle operator’s negligence, you may face medical bills, therapy, disability, and pain and suffering. Police or firefighters may have failed to exercise proper precautions when they ran into your car or truck en route to the scene of an emergency. You have similar rights to sue for damages that you would in any other personal injury situation — but the liable party may be a city or other government agency rather than a private insurer. However, there may be short time limits for making a claim. An experienced law firm is your best ally.
We will handle all of the legal, administrative and financial details of your case, so you can focus on what is most important: Recovering physically and emotionally after your accident.
