Our client, a Fairfax County resident, was rear-ended by a Fairfax County Ambulance while on her way home from work. The vehicle damage was extremely minimal but our client developed Fibromyalgia. The County defended the case at all costs, claiming the ambulance driver was immune from suit because of sovereign immunity (police, fire trucks, and ambulances get special protections). We argued that the law requires "something more than normal driving" for immunity to attach, because all driving involves some risk. Only when the driving is emergent (think chasing a fleeing suspect) does immunity apply. Here, the patient in the ambulance wasn't in any danger (just drunk). The ambulance was driving like everyone else on the road. He didn't even have his lights or siren on. His accident was a normal, negligent driver accident. Because immunity didn’t apply, the Defense had to negotiate.
