According to Devin Sayers’ complaint, guards did not secure his wheelchair to the floor of the van that was used to take him to Rikers Island. As a result, Sayer’s wheelchair flipped back while in transit, injuring him. Sayers was allegedly left on the floor until he reached Rikers Island.
The city settled the case for $400,000. Sayers was represented by Brett Klein of Leventhal & Klein, a Staten Island firm.
