Over the last twenty years, Texas Private Ambulances Services have become more common as some government politicians have decided to outsource government functions to private companies. However, despite providing some savings, in reality many political subdivisions who have contracted with the lowest private ambulance bidder in providing Private Ambulance Services for their citizens have had problems with the quality of emergency medical services that they receive. These low cost private ambulance services can create hazards for other Texans that share the roads and highways with poorly trained, unqualified, and unsupervised drivers and paramedics racing to emergency situations.

Texas Private Ambulance Service News Uncovers Unqualified Drivers and Drivers with Criminal Backgrounds & Invalid Drivers Licenses
Audit Finds Flaws in TxDOT Program
10/31/2007 10:28 AM

"A new report by the State Auditor's Office uncovered some mishandlings with a program run by the Texas Department of Transportation. The Medical Transportation Program is designed to help mainly Medicaid patients get to and from doctors appointments. Last year, they transported 196,308 Texans in an ambulance from a private medical transportation company. The companies must meet certain requirements if the government foots the bill.
The report focused on four transportation providers in the state: American Medical Response, Irving Holdings, LaFleur Transportation and East Texas Support Services. Of the 239 drivers studied, 16 percent had criminal backgrounds and 14 percent had invalid driver's licenses.
The report found a TxDOT program hired people with criminal backgrounds and invalid drivers' licenses. The audit also found some of the subcontractors hired by private medical transport companies are not on TxDOT's approved list. The largest transportation provider is American Medical Response. An email from their regional director of communications said..."This [report] is not for AMR ambulances, paramedics or EMTs ... this [report] was for subcontractors for a managed transportation contract."
"We'll have to tighten our rules and procedures that we have with the program that regulate what the vendors and contractors can do and how they are to perform in the program," TxDOT spokesperson Mark Cross said. For now, TxDOT said the contracts with the private medical transport companies will continue.
TxDOT has less than a year to try and fix the medical transportation program. Starting Sept. 1, 2008, the program will be under the control of the Texas Health and Human Service Commission."

"TX-DOT plans to reenact a Christmas morning accident in Leonard involving an ambulance that killed three people to find out why the accident happened."
"A Shreveport, Louisiana, woman and her twin sons were killed in the accident Christmas morning around 6:00 a.m. in the Leonard/Trenton area. Authorities tell us a Bonham ambulance, headed North on FM 981 did not see a Chevy Malibu headed North on Highway 69, and pulled out in front of it.
The Malibu hit the ambulance. The impact sent both vehicles off the road, flipping the ambulance on its side, sending the Malibu crashing through a fence, killing the driver and her twin sons."

It is against Texas law for drunk drivers to operate motor vehicles, water craft, and air craft. If the drunk driver causes an automobile accident or boating accident that causes serious injuries or death, they can be charged under Texas law with intoxication assault or intoxication manslaughter both serious felonies.
In handling Texas drunk driver accident claims, it is important to review the police report and medical records to determine if any tickets or citations were issued or if any tests were done to determine if the negligent driver was under the influence. It is also important to speak with witnesses to determine where the person was before the accident and what they were doing that caused the accident. In many instances it is obvious if the person was drunk. Evidence of drunk driving can include sporadic driving including driving at high rates of speed, weaving in and out of traffic, and not following traffic signals. It can also include a person who is slurring, staggering, or out of control after the automobile accident that they have caused.
