Thank you Mr. Hunt
You make sense but if someone is hurt and hurt badly and they ask for help and for a quick ride how can you say no?! Not planning on charging. How is it different from a vehicle and helicopter when it comes to a ride?
I will definitely talk to insurance agent
I'm guessing if you move someone who is badly hurt, in a truck or helicopter, and you make their injuries worse by moving them without a proper diagnosis first ie spinal injury, internal bleeding, etc, you could get sued by the person you're trying to help. If it's just a broken limb or something similar, you'd probably be okay but you wouldn't need a stretcher for those types of injuries.
If a person is injured badly enough to need a stretcher, you could be doing them more harm than good by moving them without proper medical attention first, and possibly get sued in the process.
You might be able to get around it by having the injured person sign a waiver first, if they're able to.
Similar issues with flying friends around in a private helicopter. If you crash they could sue you for all kinds of things. I actually have anyone who wants to fly with me sign a waiver or we don't go flying, family members excluded.
