Pedestrian Accident when Struck by Obstructed and Distracted Cell Phone User yields a $1,500,000 Settlement

In October 2008, our client received a $1,500,000 settlement from a defendant driver who was distracted by a cellular phone and an obstructed sign. He was struck as he walked on the sidewalk in front of defendant's car. A cellular phone account of the defendant driver showed use at the exact time of the impact.

I have known Ira for several decades and without a doubt he represents the best of the profession- a never ending commitment to his clients and a perpetual desire for learning and sharing his expertise with his colleagues. Richard

I found, and still find, that Ira’s firm will evaluate the case fairly and provide the client with a reasonably expectation of the process involved and will avoid giving false hope where there is none. Also Ira’s firm consistently keeps in constant touch with the client as well as referring attorneys so each knows the progress of a case. Finally I can tell you that if I personally were injured, Ira Leesfield is the first person I would call. Michael Browning
