Pedestrian Accident

Our client was crossing a street in Washington, DC when she was struck by a car. She was knocked unconscious, suffered a broken left leg and a cerebral concussion. She required internal fixation by means of a metallic plate in her left leg. The police report however, stated that our client was 15 feet outside the crosswalk and therefore at fault for the accident. We investigated the accident and discovered that the police officer’s estimate was based on where our client was lying when he arrived on the scene. We were able to convince the responsible driver’s insurance company that due to the force of the impact, our client was likely far closer to the crosswalk at the time of impact. We were then able to settle the case for the responsible driver’s full insurance policy of $100,000 without having to file suit.
