Non-Emergency Medical Transportation Claims Lawyer

Many people with disabilities rely on non-emergency medical transportation (NEMT) to get back and forth for treatment. Companies that provide this service have an obligation to safely transport their customers and can be held liable if a customer is injured in a vehicle accident while using their service. If you have been injured due to negligence on the part of a NEMT company, you may be entitled to file a claim to receive compensation for your injuries.

In Florida, non-emergency medical transportation is a big business. With our large elderly population, there are many of our residents that use NEMT on a regular basis. NEMT companies in Florida must be certified, and their drivers must have a for-hire chauffeur registration. This service provides transportation for those in wheelchairs, on stretchers or with medical conditions that make it difficult to use other types of public transportation.

Injuries Caused During NEMT

While a customer is using non-emergency medical transportation, they should be protected from preventable accidents. While drivers of these vehicles are not medical personnel, they are expected to be trained to transport their clients safely. Some common events that have caused injuries to customers using NEMT include:

  • Failing to secure the patient in the vehicle
  • Collision with another vehicle or object
  • Loading and unloading accidents
  • Chair lift accidents
  • Leaving patients in the vehicle and exposure to heat or unsafe conditions

When a person is injured when using non-emergency medical transportation, the company is often liable for the injuries. If you or a loved one sustained an injury using NEMT in Florida, contact our team at Ligori & Ligori Attorneys at Law. We will schedule a free consultation at our office in Tampa to discuss your claim and offer advice on your legal options.

My experience with Ligori & Ligori was excellent. Their attention to detail and genuine concern for my situation showed that they truly cared about me as a client. The staff was professional, knowledgeable, and kept me informed throughout the entire process. I would highly recommend Ligori & Ligori to anyone needing help and direction after an auto accident.

Alisabeth S.

Ligori & Ligori is an amazing law firm. The employees take time with you to make sure that you truly understand the details of your case and why things are done a certain way to produce the best results. When calling, I always spoke to a person and on the off chance that a message was left, I received a return call promptly. I highly recommend Ligori & Ligori.

Michael J.

Mr. Ligori's firm took the time to explain the legal process and find another attorney in another county. If this law firm can go the extra distance for not even their client, imagine the dedication and expertise if you were their client.

Angela K.

I had an amazing experience with Ligori & Ligori law firm. They handled my case with such professionalism. From the very beginning by sending someone to my home to get details and interview me after my accident, to my case manager Rochelle who was always a call away and explained every step and made sure there was always transparency and kept me updated with everything. I can be very tough and I called way too many times with millions of questions and my calls were never unanswered and my questions and concerns were always answered. Thanks to their amazing team, from the receptionist to John Castro the lawyer on my case who was always personal and relatable. Highly recommended!
