Well your hardly going to be kissing him for leaving you a paraplegic are you.

With regards good Samaritans, just because you are attempting help, doesn't mean you shouldn't get it, if you did something stupid.

Besides first aid is basically common sense, so if you do get it wrong, then you deserve to be sued for being stupid. e.g. if someone has a neck injury and is in pain, and there is no immediate reason to move them, and you can wait for medical staff - why move them?
