Indiana Emergency Crews Sometimes in Dire Peril Themselves

We have noted in past blog posts on our personal injury website at the proven victims' advocacy firm of Tabor Law in Indianapolis that the sources of wrongful death are many and varied.

Patients die from botched surgeries, medication errors and other causes. Dangerous products kill consumers in a number of ways following negligence in design or manufacture. On-the-job injuries or accidents often turn deadly in Indiana and nationally owing to broad-based human errors.

And, of course, negligent and reckless driving behaviors on streets and highways are an immediate catalyst promoting dire outcomes for motorists in passenger vehicles, motorcyclists, bicyclists, pedestrians and others.

Here's a sad and flatly tragic irony that is sometimes linked with emergency roadway crews simply doing their jobs trying to help others who are in trouble: They themselves can easily become imperiled by the third-party negligence of other drivers whizzing by. They are there to help, and yet in too many instances each year they are victimized in ways that lead to serious injury or even death.

That is noted in one recent Indiana media account, with that report noting that the state's "Move Over, Slow Down" law was enacted in direct response to the catastrophic injuries and deaths suffered by Indiana emergency workers because of motorists' distracted driving behaviors.

Absent negligence, those sad outcomes would never occur.

The attorneys at Tabor Law Firm help accident victims and their families secure meaningful outcomes and maximum compensation when their lives are turned upside down by the substandard conduct of others.
