Six Figure Policy Limit Pedestrian Accident Settlement

In this case, our client suffered a displaced lateral tibial plateau fracture.
Our client was walking into a local grocery store when the negligent driver failed to pay attention and struck our client in the leg. Our client was taken by ambulance to the local hospital where she was diagnosed with a displaced lateral tibial plateau fracture. As a result of the fracture, our client had to have her knee aspirated, injected with lidocaine, and suffer through a long period of non-weight bearing while wearing an immobilizer.
Despite the obvious injury, the defendant driver’s insurance company refused to offer a dime without a lawsuit claiming that the car never actually struck our client. Fortunately, the pedestrian accident lawyers at Tittle & Perlmuter were able to file the lawsuit and obtained the surveillance video from the grocery store, which clearly showed the impact between the car and the client.
After roughly a year of litigation, the case settled on the eve of trial for the insurance policy limits, totaling six figures.
