Aid to injured in the USA? Answered
This isn't a technical question as such but I just watched an episode of NCIS where an ex Marine medic was arrested for giving aid to some people injured in a car crash. Is this the case in the USA that without being a registered medic your not allowed by law to help others?
I have just completed CPR and Defibrillation training, (we have just installed one in our village), Here in England you would be expected to do your best, if that resulted in a bad result even death no one could successfully sue you, in fact we were told that if we called 999 (equivalent to 111) we would be covered by the paramedic insurance as you would be working under their instruction.
In Scotland and France you are required by Law to give assistance. You can be sued if you withhold aid to an injured person.
