Successful Settlement — Distracted Driver vs. Pedestrian

Attorney Frizzell recently concluded representation of an elderly gentleman struck at a pedestrian street crossing by a distracted driver.  Client suffered a fractured hip, resulting in permanent injuries and a loss of part time income.  We avoided the insurance company’s defense of failure to use available crosswalks, due to our timely interviewing of witnesses to verify the fault of the driver, rather than the client.  Case settled prior to suit for full amount of available insurance policy limits.
