$995k Settlement for Multi-Car Collision - Adamson Ahdoot LLP

$995k Settlement for Multi-Car Collision

Our client was the restrained passenger of a white-colored 2007 Chevrolet Silverado traveling on the I-880 freeway approaching the intersection of I-101 South in San Jose, California. At the same time, the defendant was operating a white-colored 2000 Isuzu NPR directly behind our client’s vehicle at a high rate of speed.

Our client slowed down and stopped when the defendant driver failed to yield to the vehicle ahead and slammed into the rear of our client’s vehicle. As a result of this collision, our client’s vehicle was totaled. As a result of this collision, our client also incurred a loss of use.

The defendant owed a duty of reasonable care to the public and particularly our client to drive in a safe, prudent, and reasonable manner. The defendant breached these duties when they acted unreasonably, carelessly, recklessly, and negligently under the circumstances, thereby forcefully causing this collision.

Failure to keep a proper lookout for conditions of the road violated statutes and resulted in the collision.

Per the supportive documentation, our Client was obeying all laws at the time of the collision and was acting reasonably under the circumstances, consequently alleviating any comparative negligence issues. Based on the foregoing, and based on the provided documentation, it is abundantly clear that liability solely rests with the defendants.

Liability is indisputable in this case, and Hartford Fire Insurance accepted liability in this matter. As such, our client won full compensation for all economic and non-economic damages proximately caused by the defendant’s negligence.
