Throughout the years, numerous ambulance accident cases have been reported in the state of Florida. Often times, these ambulance accidents have resulted in substantial injuries to ambulance passengers, and also drivers of motor vehicles involved in ambulance crashes. When ambulance drivers have to race through traffic and public roads, the chances of an accident occurring, or a rollover occurring, increase immensely. This is why ambulance and EMS drivers must exercise extreme caution when driving the ambulance and transporting passengers. When drivers fail to exercise caution and proper care, they may be considered negligent according to Florida state laws.
