Pedestrian accidents are likely to involve very serious injuries or death. Johnson Johnson & Schaller has handled many pedestrian accident claims for victims and families. We recently represented the French children of a gentleman tourist who was in the United States visiting when he was run over and killed by a distracted driver. In another case, one of our clients, a police officer, was hit by a car when he was picking up debris that had fallen from a scrap metal truck.
In a tragic case, a 12 year old girl walking along a rural road near her home was hit by a beer distributor truck. The driver and passenger fled the scene unidentified. After extensive federal litigation discovery and pending our motion for punitive damages, Johnson Johnson & Schaller negotiated a multimillion dollar settlement on behalf of the girls’ family. As a condition of that settlement, the trucking company agreed to send its managers through safety education and institute new operation policies that would ensure compliance with federal safety regulations. The opportunity to help improve roadway safety for others meant a great deal for the family.
