Woman Suing Ocean City Over Wheelchair Accident

Posted:
 OCEAN CITY, Md.- A woman who says a defect in a wheelchair sidewalk ramp in Ocean City caused her to fall out of her wheelchair and break her arm is suing the resort town for negligence.
 
Oda Wendt, 89, of Philadelphia alleges that a piece of rubber on the warning mat caused her wheelchair, which was being pushed by her daughter, to stop suddenly.
 
Her lawsuit, filed Aug. 20 in federal court in Baltimore, seeks $750,000 in damages. The lawsuit said the incident happened in June 2012 on Philadelphia Road.
 
Guy Ayres, an attorney for Ocean City, said the State Highway Administration owns the road and installed the mats in Ocean City.
