Am I liable for the emergency care or services rendered at the scene of a crash?

Any person who is an unpaid volunteer, who in good faith, renders emergency care or services at or near the scene of a crash, disaster, or other emergency, or en route to a treatment facility, is not liable to the recipient of the emergency care or services for any damages resulting from the rendering of that care or service. This does not apply to willful misconduct or gross negligence on the part of any intoxicated person or other person rendering aid. NDCC 39-08-04.1 (51kb PDF)
