Are you contacting Gwynedd, accident claim solicitors after receiving treatment from paramedics?
If you, or a family member, suffers a serious unexpected accident or injury, you may need to call for emergency medical assistance. By dialling 999 during a medical emergency, you can be connected to emergency services personnel who will assist you. In addition to giving advice as to how the injured person can be helped, they can also dispatch paramedics, ambulance technicians or other medical professionals who can assist.
In most cases, paramedics or ambulance workers are supposed to be at the scene within a matter of minutes. Of course, if you live in a remote area, or even in an inner city area with high volumes of traffic, you may have to wait longer for assistance to arrive.
Unfortunately, how long it takes for medical help to arrive can mean the difference between life and death. In some cases, had paramedics arrived sooner, it may have been possible to save a patient’s life or prevent injuries from worsening. This can obviously be extremely distressing for the patient’s families and friends and they may argue that help should have arrived sooner.
