  • $1,900,000 — We recovered $1.9 million in total compensation for a victim of a pedestrian accident which occurred when a cement truck hit our client, who was crossing a parking lot on foot. We brought in an outside expert reconstructionist to investigate the accident and prove liability.
  • $1,625,000 — We were brought in by an out-of-state attorney to assist with a pedestrian accident case in which our client was hit by a vehicle while attempting to cross a road on foot. The insurance company denied liability, at which point we brought in outside investigators to prove our case. Through mediation, we recovered $1.625 million in total compensation for the victim and were pleased to have helped secure justice in this matter.
  • $140,000 — Our client was walking and had the right of way when crossing the road at an intersection. She was hit when the defendant failed to stop their vehicle, and she suffered serious injuries. The victim also lost her job as a waitress due to limited mobility as a result of the accident. We proved liability in the case and secured $140,000 in total compensation on our client’s behalf.
