Motor Vehicle Accident

We obtained a $2,000,000 settlement on behalf of a woman who suffered an amputation of her right leg below the knee as a result of an automobile accident in the District of Columbia. Our client was a passenger in a delivery vehicle. The driver of the delivery vehicle rear-ended a truck owned by a different company that was double parked while delivering goods. We filed suit against the companies that owned both vehicles. We alleged that the driver of the vehicle in which our client was a passenger negligently ran into the back of the double-parked vehicle. We also alleged that the double parked vehicle was parked illegally. The company that owned the vehicle in which our client was a passenger claimed that its driver was an independent contractor and thus it was not responsible for his driving. The company whose vehicle was double parked claimed it was lawful to double park a delivery vehicle under city law. It further claimed the driver of the vehicle in which the client was a passenger had fallen asleep and was solely responsible for the accident. After extensive discovery and investigation, we were able to settle the case through private mediation for $2,000,000.
