$1.66M Settled for Commercial Truck Pedestrian Accident
On March 11, 2019, our client was a pedestrian walking at a truck stop in Salinas, California. One of the defendants was operating a vehicle in the same parking lot. The other defendants were his employer and the truck stop where our client was hit.
The defendant, that was driving, failed to notice our client for lack of visibility, made a sudden U-turn, and struck them. The truck stop was liable for turning off the floodlights at night. Upon impact, our client fell to the ground and sustained injuries on their face, bilateral hands, and bilateral knees. They also suffered abrasions to their forehead and side. They complained of pain in their right lateral pelvis, back, and legs and sustained lacerations to the left side of the face near the eye socket, forehead, bilateral arms, and right ankle. Furthermore, they had bruising and abrasion along the left pelvic/hip region and left thigh. Open fracture to their right knee and possibly right ankle.
Liability, in this case, was indisputable. The defendant driver’s failure to keep a proper lookout for the conditions of the road and their surroundings violated statutes and resulted in the collision. Our client was entitled to full compensation for all economic and non-economic damages proximately caused by the defendant in this pedestrian accident.
