Pedestrian Accident

Our client was a pedestrian walking on Rhode Island Avenue at its intersection with Brentwood Road, in Washington, DC. Our client walked with a cane at the time and was almost half way across Brentwood Road when a negligent driver made a left-hand turn onto Rhode Island Avenue from Brentwood and struck our client’s left side. There is no crosswalk at the intersection, but our client and others in the neighborhood frequently crossed Brentwood at this intersection. As a result of the collision, our client injured her left knee, back, rib, left arm and right knee. The negligent driver denied responsibility and claimed that our client walked into his car. Nevertheless, we filed a lawsuit and soon after were able to obtain a settlement offer for the full amount of liability insurance available.
