New NEMT case shows wheelchair securement issues can be deadly

Transportation Alternatives President Ned Einstein was engaged in his nearly 90th wheelchair tipover case (Nubin v. Pena, Mediwheels et. al), whose 79-year-old decedent was not secured to her wheelchair, and thrown out of it when the vehicle stopped short. The service provider was selected and overseen by a national mega-giant non-emergency medical transportation (NEMT) broker.

Prominent words: transportation and wheelchair.
