deaf interpreter

Recommended Posts

Guest Guest

I am currently taking an American Sign Language class at a community college, and we have a project requiring us to discover the legal ramifications of an ASL 101 student acting as an ASL interpreter in an emergency situation (i.e. aiding in communications between EMTs and an injured deaf driver after a car accident). Any information about laws or policies regarding a such a situation would be greatly appreciated.

Another question for the same project:

I seem to remember hearing somewhere that if you try to help a person in a life-threatening situation but make a mistake, that person (or their family) cannot legally sue you.

Is this true? If so, would it apply to a person acting as an interpreter?
