$730,000 for a pedestrian vs. auto accident in Alameda.
GJEL Accident Attorneys represented a driver who had gotten out to check his truck for an oil leak in a line of stopped vehicles. The defendant driver backed his own truck into our client’s vehicle, crushing the pedestrian‘s arm as it was pinned between the two vehicles. Accident attorney Luke Ellis obtained testimony from a number of eyewitnesses which placed the fault 100% on the defendant driver and discovered that the driver was without a permanent license, having been hired by the trucking company only recently. $625,000 was recovered for our client’s past and future medical expenses, lost wages, and pain and suffering.
