California Court of Appeal

Van Horn v. Watson, B188076, B189254

In case involving a car accident where plaintiff claimed defendant negligently removed plaintiff from the car, summary judgment for defendant based on immunity under Health and Safety Code section 1799.102 is reversed as: 1) section 1799.102 only applies to the rendering of care at the scene of a medical emergency; and 2) since there was no medical emergency, and disputes of fact existed, defendant was not entitled to summary judgment.
