Plaintiff, an 81-year-old gentleman, walking with a cane, was crossing the street when he was hit by a car making a left turn. Despite the plaintiff’s age and the fact that he was walking with a cane, the defendant’s insurance carrier insisted he “darted” into the street, and blamed the entire accident on him. As a result of the accident, the plaintiff was knocked to the ground. He was taken to the hospital where blood on his brain was found. He was released four days later. The defendants sent the plaintiff to a neurologist who was of the opinion that the plaintiff was completely recovered from the accident. The insurance company refused to settle the case. Our law firm successfully obtained a decision from the Court that the accident was completely the fault of the defendant after a thorough investigation into the facts of the accident and conducting thorough depositions. We then consulted with traumatic brain injury physicians to show how seriously the plaintiff was injured. After selecting a jury and showing defense counsel our trial exhibits, our law firm was able to secure a large, confidential settlement amount in the mid-hundred-thousand-dollar range.The information provided on this website does not, and is not intended to, constitute legal advice; instead, all information, content, and materials available on this site are for general informational purposes only.
