[May 2018 Update: Case has been resolved to client’s full satisfaction]
Our client is a victim of distracted and reckless driving.
In only a second or two, her life was turned upside down after being struck by a distracted driver. It can happen to you too.
She did nothing wrong and is an innocent victim. Here’s what happend.
As she did every night after getting home from work, our client was lawfully walking across the parking lot driveway at her townhouse complex to get the mail. When she started to cross, there were no cars.
Just before making it all the way across the driveway, a vehicle entered the parking area from the main street and approached our client from the left. Our client observed the drivers head looking down (probably at her phone but it doesn’t really matter).
What does matter is that she wasn’t being careful or watching where she was going. If she was she would have easily observed our client.In the next second or two, our client watched the vehicle approach and strike her as she turned to the side to try and avoid the collision.
