Pedestrians struck by motor vehicles are nearly-guaranteed to suffer serious injuries that will require extensive hospitalization and rehabilitation. In order to avoid paying high medical bills out of pocket, the injured party must often file a claim against the negligent driver that has caused them harm. This is where Willis Law, P.A. can step in and offer trusted legal advocacy backed by two decades’ worth of experience.
Three recent successful pedestrian accident case results we have secured are:
- $100,000 (policy limit): A woman attempting to commit suicide was struck by a vehicle, experienced severe brain trauma, and eventually passed away from her injuries. Her surviving family members filed a pedestrian accident/wrongful death claim against the driver. Despite the woman’s apparent intentions, negligent handling of a motor vehicle still contributed significantly to her death.
- $100,000 (policy limit): While attempting to cross the street, a college student was struck by a reckless driver. The impact broke her left tibia in three places and required extensive surgery to correct – two nails were driven into her knee and another in her ankle. She also required eleven stitches in her left arm and right foot, and doctors also determined she had suffered bleeding in her brain.
- $1,000,000 (policy limit): A mother was waiting at the bus stop when she was struck by a tow truck, resulting in her death. The woman’s daughter filed a wrongful death/pedestrian accident claim. It was determined that the tow truck driver was known to have a history of crippling seizures but was allowed to continue operating the vehicle anyway.
We are proud to be able to say that we secured the absolute maximum available compensation for our clients in all three of these cases, but we are happier to be able to say that we have helped them all live life a little more comfortably after such unexpected tragedies.
