Motor Vehicle Accident Case Results

Facts

  • Our client was slowly wheeling her shopping cart back to her car at a Safeway outside parking lot. The defendant backed up without looking around, struck her, and she suffered personal injuries, including a broken arm and neurological pain.

How We Helped

  • We proved that had the defendant simply turned his head, he would have seen our client walking behind his car. Instead, the defendant chose not to look in his rearview mirror and ignored a known blind spot. He acted negligently by not backing out slowly and cautiously in a shopping center frequented by thousands of elderly customers from the nearby senior living community.

The Results

  • Within six to eight months, the case was resolved through confidential mediation. Our client received a very fair award.
