Pre-Hospital Healthcare / Emergency Medical Services


Need an Expert Witness?

Emergency Medical Services are necessary when someone becomes ill or injured. These cases may include general liability for injuries sustained in or around your premises or work-related injuries. Each of these situations is unique and requires an Expert Witness with the qualifications to determine if or when the failure to provide proper care may have complicated or added to an injury or illness.

When evaluating policies or claims it is vital to use an expert witness who has expertise in the intricacies of pre-hospital health care. Our experienced medical expert witnesses regularly assess and opine on medical claims related to first aid provided by lay-persons, first responder care provided by response teams and emergency medical services provided by basic and advanced medical providers (EMTs and Paramedics).

Managing and evaluating Emergency Medical Service risk involves using accepted emergency health care policies & procedures, and reasonable medical and trauma practices. These evaluations often encompass local medical practices balanced against accepted guidelines including state regulations, National Highway Transportation Safety Administration, the Health Resources and Services Administration, the National EMS Scope of Practice, State specific protocols, the National Registry of Emergency Medical Technicians and the American Heart Association Standard and Practices.

The most common issues reviewed are questions centering on closest appropriate destination, access to proper medical care, development of a proper differential diagnosis, initiation of proper protocol(s), medical evaluations, documentation and quality of care. Whether you are working with a state tort law or 42 US Code §1983 claim, OSS can help!
