You might be liable to them under general negligence theories of law. A lot depends on the facts surrounding the accident. The use of the wheelchair is a factor, but doesn't constitute an absolute defense. You will need a lawyer to help you settle their claim, but If you have any kind of homeowner's insurance, contact your insurance agent because some policies might cover this kind of situation.
