Injured Pedestrian Receives $800K Settlement

man tending to knee injured in pedestrian accident

The client we represented in this pedestrian accident was struck by a car while walking in a crosswalk in Placer County.

As a result of the accident, the client sustained a left knee fracture requiring a hinged knee brace. The recommended medical treatment included a total left knee arthroplasty — not an ideal solution, given that a pre-existing heart condition made him a risky candidate for surgery. The victim — 62 and retired — suffered additional heart trauma caused by the auto impact.

Should You Pursue a Pedestrian Injury Settlement?

Though our client was retired, his quality of life was severely impacted by knee complications, a leg edema and ambulatory functional loss.

If you’ve been injured by a negligent driver and are hesitating to pursue legal action because of a pre-existing condition, you should know that it doesn’t preclude you from getting a settlement. In some cases, a pre-existing condition that would otherwise be manageable is further aggravated by a collision.

This client’s $800,000 settlement will go a long way toward covering past and future medical bills. Contact us for a free case evaluation today!
