Nashville and other parts of Tennessee has a large number of medical transport vehicles. These vehicles are usually vans that transport people to doctor visits, medical tests or physical therapy.
The drivers of these vehicles must be very attuned to the special needs of their passengers. For example, if the passenger is in a wheel chair, the passenger must be secured in the chair and the chair in the van before the van is moved. Failure to do so can result in the passenger being ejected from the chair in a sharp turn, sudden stop, or a collision with another vehicle.
Improper loading or unloading medical transport vehicles may also result in injuries.
Because medical transport vehicles are being operated for a fee paid by the passenger they are often considered "common carriers" and thus the drivers and owners of these vehicles owe the highest degree of care to their passengers.
