A resident at a local nursing home was being transported in her wheelchair in non-emergency medical van to a regularly scheduled dialysis appointment. Although she knew she should, the driver decided not to secure the wheelchair to the floor of the vehicle or to strap her passenger into the wheelchair.

While turning into the dialysis center, the wheelchair tipped, throwing the passenger from the wheelchair. She hit her head on the vehicle’s floor causing a serious head injury. The Law Office of David M Jamieson represented her and her family and recovered substantial damages.
