I often wonder what, if anything these EMT's would do if the person they were helping turned around and sued thewm for something that happened while they were caring for them. I'd think twice before helping anyone else as maybe this Jason Green fellow did.. Be your own BOSS in life and not a follower at all!!
If their negligent or reckless they'll have a problem. If they do what is reasonably expected of them they have no worries.

Apparently you have never been in any healthcare jobs and/OR been an EMT! The courts change their minds at the drop of a hat in any lawsuit brought by a minority so as to say that they didn't know that they were entitled to due care and they determined that not everything in their power was done.. I gave up my certification when they sued my fellow EMT and took his house and bank accounts to pay the black dweeb off.. Now if I see someone in distress that is their problem, I like my house and bank account in MY control, NOT in some judges control!!
