Delayed Emergency Vehicle Response
The average response time for paramedics to an emergency site is 12 to 15 minutes. For many accidents, the paramedics arrive in plenty of time to assess the scene and take care of the victims, but there are some accidents in which every minute counts. Emergency vehicles are expected to arrive quickly, but there are many instances when the vehicles are delayed and victims do not receive the timely medical attention that they need.
If you or a loved one has been involved in a car accident and suffered needless additional health complications because the emergency medical technicians failed to respond in a timely manner, you may be eligible to seek financial compensation through a civil lawsuit.

Emergency Medical Response Errors
Your safety and life may depend on these vehicles responding quickly and promptly to the scene of the accident. Some common emergency vehicle mistakes that could lead to more severe injuries and even death include:
- Failure to take a proper route to the scene of an accident
- Poor communication with dispatcher or hospital
- Mistaken initial assessment of an accident victim’s condition
If you have suffered because of an emergency medical treatment error, it may be appropriate to file a civil lawsuit.
