$2M Settled for Medical Malpractice & Negligence - Adamson Ahdoot LLP

$2M Settled for Medical Malpractice & Negligence

In November 2017, our client was being transported from a health facility in Eureka to a hospital in Santa Rosa, California, via ambulance. During transit, our client fell out the rear door of the ambulance because paramedics failed to properly secure them to their stretcher and to prudently monitor them during the transport. In fact, the paramedic riding in the back with them, sat behind a gurney instead of on the bench next to the gurney. Thus, they had a restricted view of our client.

They were unresponsive at the scene and the paramedics transported them to a hospital in Eureka. Ultimately, they sustained severe brain injuries as a result of this incident. As discussed below, the defendant’s negligence and failure to exercise ordinary care in discharging their duties caused our client injuries. Furthermore, the defendant was subject to a higher standard of care as a common carrier.
