Does the ADA apply to those who have had their wheelchair broken, and injuries occurred because the responsible party waited a month to fix it?

More details to this question:
My electric wheelchair was damaged by a faulty elevator door at the Doubletree Hilton in Bloomington, MN. The supervisor assigned to my case didn't do anything for 3 weeks. It took another full week with a different supervisor to authorize repairs and get them done, so I could use it again. During this time, I had a significant loss of functioning below my waist, and the pain was so bad, I had to be treated with steroids. I've been off work for 3 weeks. Did the hotel violate my rights in waiting for an entire month before they fixed my chair? They took away my primary mode of functioning outside of my apartment, and I was injured because of it. The pain and suffering has been severe. I know this is not a Social Security issue. The law area did not have a selection for disability or ADA law.

I  agree.  This is not a Social Security Disabilty issue.  My suggestion is to ask it in the personal injury area of  law.

No attorney-client relationship has been established because of the information provided. Seek local counsel to address your particular facts. MJHJ

Social Security Disability
If you're suffering from a disability that prevents you from working, you may be entitled to benefits under Social Security disability insurance (SSD or SSDI). Social Security disability attorneys can work with you to file your application for benefits. Because the Social Security Administration routinely denies the majority of initial claims, your SSD lawyers can also prepare for your hearing before an administrative law judge, attend all hearings, advocate on your behalf and file an appeal if your application has been denied. Hire an SSDI law firm as soon as you need to apply for SSDI. The faster your application is approved, the more quickly you will begin to receive benefits.
