Pedestrian/Segway Accident

Our client was a 15-year-old girl who was visiting the United States. She was on a Segway tour of Washington, DC with her family when the driver of an automobile failed to stop at a crosswalk and struck her. As a result of the impact, she was pushed over 15 feet and knocked unconscious. She made a good recovery, but suffered a fracture to her right leg that required the insertion of a metal rod. The insurance company for the negligent driver made a low offer during settlement discussions, so we filed suit on her behalf. After discovery and depositions of our client and her family, the driver’s insurance company raised their offer and we were able to settle the case for $250,000. This allowed our client to avoid coming back to the United States for trial.
