Time, personnel constraints and tiredness are just three reasons why mistakes are sometimes made by paramedics and ambulance crew. As a result, a patient’s condition could deteriorate and, in some circumstances, lives are lost unnecessarily.
Examples of negligence involving ambulance crew and paramedics include:
- Administering the wrong medication
- Failing to observe and take action to treat clear obvious signs of life threatening conditions
- Lifting and manoeuvring patients in a way that causes more damage
- Misreading observations from their equipment
Proving a medical negligence case involving paramedics:
- Breach of duty: The paramedic owes a duty of care to you in assessing and treating urgent and non-urgent conditions. We have to prove, with expert evidence, that the standard of care you received fell below that of a reasonable and competent paramedic and was therefore negligent.
- Harm: we need to prove that the negligence caused you harm
