DUMONT, N.J. — An ambulance agency and its staff are being sued for their role in an ambulance crash that killed a patient.
Florence Stricker, 87, was being transported by Guardian EMS personnel when the ambulance and another vehicle collided at an intersection March 23, 2015. She sustained injuries in the crash but died April 26, 2015 of unrelated causes, reported the New Jersey Online.
Her daughter, Sharon Rossi, is suing the ambulance company for the pain and suffering Stricker experienced before her death. The lawsuit alleges the three personnel operating the ambulance exuded carelessness, recklessness and negligence.
The suit also argues that Stricker was disabled and incurred expense for her injuries from the crash.
Rossi is seeking a jury trial and unspecified damages.
Guardian EMS officials said they were not authorized to discuss the lawsuit.
