Morgan & Murphy, LLP Legal Team Recovered $1,875,000 Settlement for Pedestrian Accident Victim

Morgan & Murphy, LLP Legal Team Recovered $1,875,000 Settlement for Pedestrian Accident Victim

Attorneys Dale Morgan, Michael J. Murphy, and Andrew T. Silva represented the victim of a pedestrian accident and achieved a $1,875,000 settlement for the plaintiff.

The victim, in this case, was a 76-year-old man who was hit by a car in Waltham, MA. He sustained severe injuries in the accident, including a mild traumatic brain injury, a subdural hematoma above his left eye, soft tissue swelling and a de-gloving injury on his hand and forearm, and fractures of the bilateral sacral, L1-L4 transverse process, left ribs, and thumb. His injuries resulted in approximately $1 million worth of medical expenses.

The plaintiff’s claim was initially denied by the insurance company — they identified their reason for denial as to their allegations that the victim quickly entered the street, and the driver was not able to stop. The plaintiff stated that he was walking on the crosswalk when the car turned and struck him.

Our legal team brought the victim’s case to Norfolk County Superior Court. We employed focus group research and the input of an accident reconstruction expert to exhibit the legitimacy of our plaintiff’s case. In the focus group, we presented our case to a sample jury, who ruled in favor of the plaintiff. The accident reconstructionist used three-dimensional models to show that the injury victim’s account was accurate, and he was in the crosswalk when the driver turned left and hit him. The case was settled for $1,875,000 following two mediation hearings.
