Our client was a physically limited, though independent, wheelchair-bound man who relied upon a professional transportation company to take him around Broward County. The company hired an untrained and unqualified driver. Furthermore, the company failed to follow basic required maintenance procedures on its vehicles. Our client was taken from his home to an appointment at which point he was told by the driver that it was safe for him to exit the vehicle. The wheelchair lift then malfunctioned, sending him falling to the ground and fracturing his leg. He was admitted to the hospital and had surgery to repair the break. After an extended pre-suit period, we sued the transportation company alleging theories of negligence and neglect of a vulnerable adult under Florida Statute 415.1111. The case was settled for $120,000.00.
