Of course. Isn't everything? Luckily we have a nice little thing called the legal system in order to determine whether or not it was a good enough call to eliminate liability. If you are an idiot and think that a crashed car is imminent peril, even though the person is conscious and complaining of a neck injury with no fire or blood present, then you're wrong. I'm assuming the court took that into consideration.

I'm assuming the court would not convict a non-negligent rescuer. And if you do more harm then good because of negligence, you should think twice.
