Attorneys Phillip J. Crowe, Jr., and Michael J. Harris of Crowe & Mulvey, LLP, recently secured a $375,000 settlement for a woman who was hit by a car while volunteering at a food drive. The plaintiff suffered serious injuries, including multiple fractures and tears, after the defendant backed into her. Allegedly, the defendant was intending to apply the brakes to his vehicle when he accidentally pushed the accelerator.
The plaintiff has improved considerably since her accident, but still experiences difficulties with a number of tasks, including moving from a sitting to a standing position, wearing certain pairs of shoes, and running. Her attorneys were able to secure an impressive settlement in this case, six times the amount of special damages. The plaintiff’s total medical bills were approximately $60,000.
