Negligence – Airport Wheelchair Request – Air Carriers Access Act

A woman who bought an airline ticket for her mother with some assurance of wheelchair assistance at the airport, can sue the airline for negligence for her mother’s injuries from a fall at the Richmond airport when she was “abandoned” without a wheelchair, but she has no private right of action against the airline under the Air Carriers Access Act, a Richmond U.S. District Court says.
