Am I legally required to pay for an ambulance that I neither requested nor made use of?

Question Details: Last year I was involved in a single vehicle accident. An ambulance arrived on the scene without being summoned by me. I was not seriously injured and refused services. The ambulance crew insisted on checking my vital signs for 'liability issues'.i refused transport to the hospital. A week later I received a bill for ambulance services. When I called the company and explained why I wasn't paying the bill they turned me over to collections. Am I somehow liable for these charges? Can I take action against them for putting a black mark on my credit rating?
