225 ILCS 65/50-40
Good Samaritan Law
An individual who, in good faith and without compensation, provides emergency care will not be held legally responsible for acting or failing to act. They can be held legally responsible if acting with extreme carelessness or intent to cause harm. Generally, Good Samaritan laws only offer protection for those individuals who provide care during spontaneous emergencies unrelated to volunteer deployment.
Emergency Care; civil liability
Exemption from civil liability for emergency care is as provided in the Good Samaritan Act [745 ILCS 49/1 et seq.].
