Emergency Medical Services
Marshall Dennehey attorneys have a history and reputation for excellence in defending Emergency Medical Services (EMS) agencies and their individual providers in all manner of litigation, including:
- Pre-hospital malpractice cases.
- Emergent and non-emergent stretcher and wheelchair cases.
- Motor vehicle accident cases involving ambulances and other first responder vehicles.
We are familiar with the unique and nuanced EMS laws and regulations in the states where we practice, including those laws designed to protect first responders, some of which provide for higher standards to prove negligence. We also represent EMS clients before various governmental agencies in credentialing and licensing issues.
Brooks Foland, chair of the Emergency Medical Services Practice Group, has defended fire and EMS agencies and providers for more than 20 years in state court and before the Pennsylvania Department of Health. He is EVOC trained and certified, and is an affiliate member of the Pennsylvania Emergency Health Services Council. As leader of the practice group, his specialized background allows us to understand the specific issues that face EMS organizations and how to successfully defend claims and suits asserted against them.
