Q: Can i sue ambulance company for taking me to wrong hospital? I asked for VA and they took me to nearby hospital
A: You can sue anyone you want for anything you want. Whether you have damages that you can prove by their actions, would be a more apt question. You should provide more facts or telephone an attorney.
A: An ambulance is not a shuttle service, and may not be obligated to take you to a hospital you want to go to. If may have been more important to get you to a hosptial for treatment than to take you where you wanted to go. It sounds like it may be difficult to prove damages, or that the ambulance violated any law or statute by taking you to the nearest hospital rather than where you personally wanted to go.
