Imagine you’re stuck in this horrible situation: While driving on the job, you are seriously injured many miles from a hospital. When an ambulance finally arrives, EMTs decide you need to be transported to the nearest medical facility by helicopter.

If you are unconscious, the decision is made for you, and you are airlifted to a hospital. But if you are awake, you know that under a law the Legislature passed to supposedly “protect” injured workers, you could be stuck with a bill of at least $30,000 if you go by helicopter.
