Pedestrian Accident

We represented a woman who was struck as a pedestrian while crossing the street in a crosswalk in Washington, DC. She had an extensive medical history, including two prior surgeries to her lower back as well as an injury to her right knee for which she sought treatment just two weeks before the accident. Nearly three years after the pedestrian accident, she underwent surgery for a torn meniscus in her right knee. Despite her complicated medical history, we retained a board-certified spine surgeon and her treating orthopedic surgeon and argued that her right knee surgery was a result of her accident and that she would develop post-traumatic arthritis in the right knee and require a total knee replacement surgery in the future. After extensive litigation, the matter was mediated and settled for $350,000.00 without the need for a trial.
