What if someone is injured in a rescue attempt?

When car accidents occur, oftentimes paramedics are not able to be on the scene immediately. Because of this, many witnesses to the accident usually can respond to the accident more quickly.

While not every witness will try to save any injured drivers or passengers, some may try and may wonder how their legal liability will be affected. Assuming the witnesses are performing reasonable safety measures, then they will likely not be charged with a personal injury claim if they further injury the injured parties. 

However, if the witnesses are injured in the process, they likely will not be able to sue for damages from the people who they were trying to save.
