DISPUTED LIABILITY RED LIGHT CRASH
Our client came to us with a low back injury after having been sued by a motorist in a disputed fault automobile collision. According to the police report, our client was at fault and had entered an intersection in his Porsche on a red light causing a collision with a large pickup truck that went on to collide with several more vehicles after the initial collision. The police report included numerous witness statements most of which blamed our client. After the course of the next two years, we took numerous depositions and what we had known all along eventually became evident-the police report was wrong and it was actually the driver of the pickup who had run the red light. After multiple days of mandatory settlement conference, just before trial, the other driver’s insurance finally agreed to compensate our client for his back injury and paid $115,000 to settle the case.
While our clients, grandparents and their two grand-kids were driving through an intersection, another vehicle illegally turned left in front of our clients.
