Ambulance Accidents in Houston
Protecting Your Rights
One does not expect to be involved in an accident with an emergency response vehicle such as an ambulance. Unfortunately, these accidents occur and can be extremely dangerous due to the high rate of speed of the ambulance. When an ambulance drives through an intersection and the oncoming traffic is not sufficiently alerted, there could be a terrible and tragic result. If you or a loved one has been injured in such an accident, contact a Houston personal injury lawyer at once. We all admire emergency responders and count on them to provide us with their service when an accident or other life-threatening situation is taking place. However, they are restricted by certain laws and requirements when moving through traffic, as are all drivers. When these are violated, accidents occur and the injuries can be extremely severe as a result.
