$6 Million Policy Limits Settlement for a Severely Brain Damaged Client
In less than 9 months, Justin Shapiro secured the maximum recovery for his client while she fought for her life. In October 2019, after a short break out of the office, our client began walking back to her office building. She had the right of way and was proceeding through the marked crosswalk.
At that time, a pickup truck driver suddenly and illegally turned left while our client was in the middle of the crosswalk. The driver struck her and and ran her down with the steel bars installed on the front end of his truck. Our client sustained horrific injuries including a series of skull fractures and brain hemorrhages. She was rendered completely unconscious on impact. If that was not enough, it did not stop the defendant from stopping his truck and he drove over her left leg and body.
Despite claims that our client was at fault, Justin Shapiro's investigation proved that the defendant's liability was clear and absolute. The defendant ignored traffic signage that was plainly observable in broad daylight. Not only did he fail to observe the road sign, he failed to observe our pedestrian client walking in the middle of the marked crosswalk. As a result, Justin Shapiro swiftly and thoroughly secured a $6 million settlement for the plaintiff, the maximum recoverable amount for his client's future.
