$150,000$150,000 Settlement Reached in Pedestrian Accident
Recently, a female pedestrian was struck by vehicle as she crossed a Chicago street. As she made her way across the crosswalk, a driver who failed to yield and exercise care when making a left-hand turn struck her, causing her to fall into the street. This impact left her unable to stand or walk, and a passerby had to drag her to the side of the road.
The woman was taken via EMS to Mercy Hospital where she sustained compression fractures in her back and joint effusion of her left knee. Additionally, she was forced to undergo kyphoplasty augmentation surgery in order to relieve the severe pain caused by the compression fractures. She also completed three months of physical therapy and was required to use a wheelchair for mobility for a significant amount of time following the accident.
The Chicago pedestrian accident attorneys of Staver Accident Injury Lawyers, P.C. represented this woman in court and negotiated a settlement with the at-fault part’s insurance of $150,000 for the client’s severity of injuries, her loss of normal life, pain and suffering, and medical bills.
