LOS ANGELES, June 2, 2015 /PRNewswire/ -- Legal-Bay LLC, The Lawsuit Settlement Funding Company, reports today that a giant class action ADA lawsuit was settled in April of this year for LA to pay $1.4 billion in sidewalk repairs. The suit was brought on behalf of a quarter-million disabled Los Angeles residents. Mayor Eric Garcetti announced the high settlement on April 1st of this year, brought to attention by disabled city residents over broken sidewalks and missing curb ramps. Many of these issues have caused slip and fall and trip and fall cases to non-disabled people as well.
The city residents claimed that the broken sidewalks prevented them from moving around freely in the city, and also impaired their rights under the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA). Now, according to scpr.org, over the next 30 years, the broken sidewalks in Los Angeles are set to get $1.4 billion in repairs. According to scpr.org, the first year will include installation of curb ramps at about $5 million (from the city and the city's general fund), and other fund money will be spent on repairing the sidewalks. A quadriplegic resident initially sued the city of LA in 2010, and then his case was broadened to a class action lawsuit.
Chris Janish, CEO of Legal-Bay, commented on the recent ADA settlement, "The sheer size of this $1.4 billion settlement underscores the importance of lawsuits filed under the Americans with Disabilities Act. As a funding company, we are here to help all plaintiffs who have been subject to discrimination, whether in the workforce or in public."
