Quantum Legal is currently investigating claims against medical helicopter emergency transportation companies that offer helicopter transportation for people with medical emergencies and is currently pursuing litigation against Life Flight Network. These unreasonably high and excessive costs of medical transport by helicopter or air ambulance are unfair to consumers. Life Flight is a for profit, emergency ambulance helicopter medical provider that has allegedly benefited from price gouging strategies and is charging unreasonably high prices that bear no reasonable relationship to their costs, sometimes as much as 400% more. Each flight on the helicopter can cost anywhere from five thousand dollars ($5000) to nearly fifty thousand dollars ($50,000) – a large portion of which is not covered by insurance. Patients transferred by helicopter transport neither receive notice of the costs nor do they often provide affirmative consent to such charges. Such patients also have no choice in selecting the helicopter transportation provider.
If you or someone you know received medical transportation services from Life Flight or any other helicopter medical emergency transportation company, please contact Quantum Legal.
