WMRR Safety Tips
Under New Hampshire Statutes, you are
protected from liability if you should render assistance at an accident scene.
508:12 Aid at Scene of Emergency or to Victim of
I. If any person in good faith renders emergency care at the place of the
happening of an emergency or to a victim of a crime or delinquent act or while
in transit in an ambulance or rescue vehicle, to a person who is in urgent need
of care as a result of the emergency or crime or a delinquent act, and if the
acts of care are made in good faith and without willful or wanton negligence, the
person who renders the care is not liable in civil damages for his acts or
omissions in rendering the care, as long as he receives no direct compensation
for the care from or on behalf of the person cared for.
Any person rendering emergency care shall have the duty to
place the injured person under the care of a physician, nurse, or other person
qualified to care for such person as soon as possible and to obey the
instructions of such qualified person.
