In this case, GJEL Accident Attorneys represented a retired two-star General and his wife, who were pedestrians struck in a San Francisco crosswalk.

The defendant was an employee of the Golden Gate Bridge, Highway, and Transportation District. The defendants attempted to avoid responsibility for their employee’s actions, claiming that he was on a lunch break and thus not “on duty,” despite the fact that he was driving a truck which was the property of the District. GJEL Accident Attorneys successfully resolved the case for $1.9 million, which covered the plaintiffs’ resultant medical damages, future medical costs, and pain and suffering.
