Walker, Hamilton & Koenig, LLP mediated a $2.85 million settlement for their clients, a pedestrian who
was struck and severely injured by an automobile and her daughter who
witnessed the horrific event.
On August 5, 2012, WHK's client, a 54-year-old professional housekeeper,
was driving her children to their Karate lesson and stopped to pick up
another child at his house. As her son went to get the other child, she
and her daughter got out of their SUV to get something from her trunk.
Just then a speeding Porsche rounded a corner in order to pass a car on
the right-hand side. The Porsche struck the back of the client's SUV,
sandwiching her between the cars, and spun 180 degrees before becoming
wedged under the SUV.
The impact nearly severed both of the client's legs and severely fractured
her hand, causing massive bleeding and life-threatening injuries. She
required blood transfusions and multiple surgeries to stabilize her and
several more surgeries and extensive physical therapy over the coming
months. Nearly a year after the accidnet, she was still unable to walk,
was reliant on medications to control her pain, and had to wear braces
for her legs.
The attorneys at
Walker, Hamilton & Koenig, LLP specialize in handling cases involving
catastrophic injuries such as the client's. They quickly brought claims against the reckless
Porsche driver on behalf of the client and her daughter, who was severely
traumatized after witnessing the accidnet. WHK attorneys also ensured
that the client received the proper medical evaluations and economic analysis
to substantiate the claims and bring about a quick resolution. WHK's
thorough and agressive approach was successful as less than a year after
her accident the reckless driver agreed to pay $2.85 million to client
and her daughter.
