Sizeable Award for the Victim of a Distracted Driver
Attorneys at Lane & Lane were successful in obtaining a $1.25 million settlement for a client, who was the victim of a distracted driver.
The pedestrian accident occurred in the early evening when Mary, our client, was on her way home from work. She was crossing 68th Street at an intersection, when a driver, who had been stopped at a stop sign at the intersection, made a left turn and struck her.
Mary suffered fractures and other serious injuries to her right ankle, left leg, and collarbone in addition to an occipital hematoma (collection of blood caused by a blow to the head) and another hematoma on the top of her foot.
The Driver Was on the Phone
We were able to demonstrate through the driver's cell phone records that he was probably using his mobile phone at the time he was making his turn and struck our client.
As this case demonstrates, distracted driving is a serious problem in our country, causing countless serious and even fatal injuries. Our attorneys take the problem of distracted driving very seriously, working tirelessly to obtain compensation for clients injured through no fault of their own. Are you ready to learn more?
