Air Ambulance Accident Attorneys

Aviation Disaster Home Practice Areas Air Ambulance Accidents

Air ambulances have been patrolling the skies since World War I. Designed to evacuate injured people in remote or inaccessible locations, these aircraft have no doubt helped save the lives of thousands.

Air Ambulance Accidents

Historically, air ambulances have earned a strong track record for safety. During the Vietnam War, for instance, the U.S. air ambulance services were so precise and quick that hurt soldiers enjoyed a better chance of surviving their injuries than did drivers hurt on the highways of California.

All this said, air ambulance crashes can and do happen. Obviously, air ambulance pilots must perform under a higher degree of pressure than do their carrier pilot counterparts. However, there has been a disturbing trend over the past decade that demonstrates that air ambulances disasters seem to be on the rise. From 2000 to 2005, for instance, the air ambulance accident rate doubled. In 2006, the National Travel Safety Board publicly reprimanded the air ambulance industry for its reckless practices. The report found that a significant percentage of all crashes were avoidable.
