Bill Proposed to Protect Drivers in Urgent Situation

Friday, March 29, 2019

 

A state representative from Jacksonville recently proposed a bill to the House of Representatives that could grant civil immunity to anyone who is transporting someone to a healthcare facility. Representative KL Brown introduced a bill that he says will protect drivers taking someone to a medical care facility from civil liability for negligence if an accident happens.

 

Brown believes people exercising good deeds shouldn’t be punished if an accident occurs unless the driver engaged in neglect or dangerous behavior. While the bill is being vetted by the trial lawyers organization, there could be additional changes to the final product if it passes and becomes law.
