$740,000.00 Settlement for Pedestrian Struck in Crosswalk
A pedestrian walking in a marked crosswalk in Los Angeles, California was struck by van. The van operator initially fled the scene of the impact but returned to it minutes later. She sustained a knee tear resulting in surgery and a head concussion (mild traumatic brain injury), and post traumatic stress disorder as a result of the impact. Attorney Samer Habbas filed suit against the operator and owner of the van.
Defendant’s experts denied the severity of our client’s concussion symptoms and her emotional distress. They adamantly argued that any emotional distress was preexisting due to non related prior events in our client’s life. Our team of experts were able to retort the defense’s meritless arguments and obtain our client justice.
As a result of Attorney Habbas’ aggressive representation, the matter resolved for $740,000.00. If your or a loved one has been struck as a pedestrian, please contact the Law Offices of Samer Habbas & Associates.
