EMT Injury Attorneys Serving Maryland

Convenient Offices in Frederick, Lexington Park, Prince Frederick, Waldorf & Bowie

Emergency medical technicians (EMTs), paramedics, ambulance drivers, and other emergency personnel work every day to help others. They save lives, but in doing so are often put in dangerous situations. EMTs may be injured in traffic accidents on their way to or from the scene of an injury, or they may suffer harm if assaulted by a patient they are trying to help. The circumstances may vary, but the result is the same: the EMT is now injured and facing an uncertain, unstable future.

EMTs and other first responders may be entitled to workers’ compensation benefits for on-the-job injuries, but recovering such benefits is far from easy. Claims may be undervalued, delayed, or denied. Workers’ comp may also not provide full coverage for lost wages, and it typically does not cover emotional trauma. A skilled Maryland EMT injury attorney can offer guidance in navigating the workers’ compensation system and looking for other sources of compensation, such as a personal injury lawsuit.

Leading Causes of EMT Injuries

According to the American Journal of Industrial Medicine, nearly 10% of EMTs and paramedics in the U.S. are absent from work at any given time due to work-related injuries or illnesses. For the general public, this rate is typically around 1.3%. Safety measures are in place to prevent such injuries, but they are not infallible and are sometimes ignored or improperly implemented.

Common causes of EMT and paramedic injuries and illnesses include:

  • Exposure to blood-borne pathogens
  • Lifting/moving patients
  • Aggressive and violent patients
  • Ambulance accidents

If you are experiencing an illness or injury as a result of your work as a paramedic or EMT, you and your family deserve to receive fair compensation. Let the Maryland injury lawyers at Alpert Schreyer Poe fight for your rights. We know the law and how it applies to emergency personnel, and we will take all appropriate actions to maximize your recovery.
