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.

What Our Happy Clients say

4.7 / 5.0

I just wanted to take a quick time out to say something nice about Mr. Tim Sanders. This man spent an entire year handling my affairs like he was my personal friend. He went to bat for me, and I could tell he cared a great deal about me, my case directly, and he clearly takes a great deal of pride and integrity into his work. You hear a lot of negative about lawyers in this world. Tim, was a tireless worker to get me what I deserved. This guy does his living from the heart. I made a really great choice when I called Tim. My wife and I are so thankful we did.

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.

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.

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 got into an auto accident and hired Mr. Sanders to represent me a couple weeks later after my insurance company’s lackluster performance to help get me back to normal. I was nervous, this was my first accident with injury and I had never hired a lawyer before. Well let me say, my expectations were met and exceeded, every step of the way. Ligori and Sanders were focused on me and my health. They were polite, prompt, and went to bat for me when the insurance company was not. Not only would I recommend Ligori and Sanders to anyone who needs them, I would insist.
