New Jersey New York Pennsylvania Non Medical Emergency Personal Injury Attorney

Non Emergency Injuries or Catastrophic Death during Medical Transport

Patients who require extra assistance need to travel safely and efficiently to and from their medical appointments. Most non-emergency transportation companies are for-profit businesses. They are often hired to assist people with special needs in their travels to various destinations. Vlasac & Shmaruk, LLC is the law firm to contact if you or someone in your family has been injured by one of these services.

Non-emergency medical transport (NEMT) companies exist to assist people with mobility problems and disabilities in getting to their appointments. Many NEMT companies provide specialized vehicles that can accommodate disabled people and staff who have been trained in safe transportation of people. These companies are trusted by elderly and disabled patients who rely on their services, but accidents and negligence is a reality when transporting our vulnerable populations.

NEMT Negligence, Injuries

The Department of Community Health contracts vendors to transport Medicaid recipients in New Jersey, New York and Pennsylvania. These companies have to train their employees in the proper use of equipment, transporting disabled people and safely delivering them to their destinations. NEMT negligence can lead to injuries such as:

  • Inadequate securing of wheelchair
  • Equipment failure
  • Patients being dropped while they are loading
  • Negligent driving/crash
  • Extreme heat and extreme cold

The company can be held responsible for injuries caused by NEMT negligence. Contact us at Vlasac & Shmaruk, LLC if you or a loved one were hurt while using NEMT services. Free consultations are available to discuss your legal options and personal injury claims.

    I can’t say enough about Vlasac & Shmaruk LLC and their commitment to providing the best service to their clients. Yelena Delgado made the process seamless and was always available for any questions or concerns. I felt like family every … More step of the way and not one of my questions went unanswered no matter what time of day I reached out. If you are looking for outstanding service, commitment to clients and an unmatched level of legal knowledge look no further than Vlasac & Shmaruk LLC!

    About 4 months ago my wife got a job that came with housing. After going over all details and making plans for about 4 months prior to moving with management we packed up our whole lives, our pets, dropped some side jobs we had, and moved … More to the property where the job was located. After a few weeks things started getting very strange with management and "team" and after 2 full months everything that was planned in detail prior to moving to this property fell apart. After trying to discuss in person with management and then trying to discuss through email with management my wife was fired and we were given 5 days to pack up and leave the property. We had to start our lives over again. We immediately contacted Vlasac & Shmaruk LLC and worked with Ryan Getz & David Cassidy who are absolutely incredible at what they do! They were able to help us get off the property in a reasonable way and receive a settlement for all trouble caused by this "business". This was an incredibly stressful and scary situation but David and Ryan stayed in contact with us, were extremely patient, professional, soothing and just overly fantastic. If you are having any type of issue with an employement situation and being treated unfairly I highly recommend working with Ryan & David! I am so thankful they were able to take our case and help us through that mess. This was our first time having to hire legal help and I am just so grateful we found David and Ryan. In the future should we need any additional legal help we will absolutely be contacting them again. Thank you both so much!

    My wife and I were involved in a motor vehicle accident. Vlasac and Shmaruk took care of everything. They walked us through the process and took care of all the paperwork. They reached a settlement and we were happy. Glad to put that … More behind us and glad we used Vlasac and Shmaruk to help us get the money we needed for a new car and to get our medical bills paid. Thanks for everything you did!!!!
