Our client was assisting a recreational aid, transporting an individual out of her home in a wheelchair in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. The locking mechanism for the handle of the wheelchair failed and collapsed causing the wheelchair to fall onto our client's foot.
Our client was a 63 year old female who resided by herself and suffered a fracture to her foot requiring surgery. Brad Cooper & Associates, LLC, filed a lawsuit against the supplier of the wheelchair alleging that the wheelchair handles were defectively designed and installed.
We were able to resolve this case in mediation prior to trial.
