Injuries to the Disabled
As a subset of our premises liability practice, the Law Office of William D. Nelson, P.C. has handled many personal injury lawsuits involving injuries to the disabled, elderly, children and other vulnerable members of our community. Our clients have included people with limited mobility, individuals with emotional and developmental disabilities, children in foster care and Alzheimer patients.
When property owners and businesses fail to design, construct and maintain accommodations for disabled individuals, injuries can result when people with disabilities attempt to use or navigate a dangerous area. For example, we handled a case involving a sidewalk and driveway that were constructed in violation of ADA engineering standards. As a result of the violation, our client's motorized wheelchair tipped over when she was crossing the hazardous pathway. We successfully settled the case, and the sidewalk and driveway were subsequently modified.
Acts of Neglect and Violence Against Children, Elders and the Disabled
Our lawyers have also handled difficult and emotional cases involving acts of violence, abuse and neglect against vulnerable individuals, including nursing home residents, children living in foster homes and disabled adults living group homes. Sadly, these incidents have led to serious injuries, trauma, and even death. Based on experience, we know how sensitive these cases can be, and clients can depend on us to be patient and understanding throughout legal proceedings.
