Wheelchair bound paraplegic client was being transported by the responsible party who failed to secure his wheelchair to the vehicle that was used to transport him.
The responsible party rear-ended a stopped vehicle on the freeway causing the client to be propelled from his wheelchair into the dash of the vehicle. The client fractured his cervical vertebrae rendering him a quadriplegic. The settlement of his case enabled him to obtain 24-hour skilled nursing care at a private residence. He also received a new van for transportation and all new medical equipment to increase his quality of life.
