HANDICAP ACCESSIBILITY

Ryan, Ryan & Landa attorney Michael Viglione recently finalized settlement of a handicap accessibility injury case for $645,000.00.  The lawsuit alleged that a commercial building owner, management company, and tenant failed to remove snow and ice from the area surrounding a handicapped parking space.  It further alleged that the snow and ice was negligently plowed into the area by a company responsible for plowing and salting the store parking lot. 

The plaintiff was injured when she fell from a plowed mound of snow while trying to walk from the handicapped space into the store.  She sustained a distal radius fracture which required multiple subsequent surgeries.  She additionally developed complex regional pain syndrome (CRPS) an extremely debilitating neurological condition.

Viglione presented expert testimony that the presence of snow and ice blocking a handicap accessible route to/from the parking space constituted a violation of state and federal handicap accessibility laws.  He also presented expert testimony from the plaintiff's orthopedic surgeon and pain management specialist concerning the severity of her injuries and how they were caused.

The settlement represents Ryan, Ryan & Landa's latest victory in fighting for the rights of handicapped and disabled individuals.  If you or a loved one is the victim of a handicap accessibility injury, please contact us today for a free case consultation.
