Liss & Marion Wins Case for Pedestrian Struck by Car

Patricia, a 44 year old woman, was walking across a large intersection in Philadelphia. She began to cross the intersection on a green traffic signal, however, the light turned to yellow after she stepped into the street. The light turned red while Patricia was still crossing the street. An oncoming vehicle with a green traffic signal struck Patricia. She suffered a serious injury and was transported by ambulance to the emergency room. Her treatment was further complicated when the emergency room physicians learned that she was under the influence of alcohol.

Liss & Marion pursued a claim for Patricia against the driver of the vehicle which struck her. Liss successfully argued that Patricia’s alcohol consumption was inadmissable since there was no evidence that Patricia was impaired or that her condition contributed to the accident. Liss & Marion recovered from the motorist’s insurance company the maximum policy limits available to Patricia.

Like most cases, pedestrians’ claims often focus upon the specific facts of the case. For example, Patricia generally had a right of way as a pedestrian who was walking within the designated crosswalk of the intersection. Her case would have been more difficult if she was crossing at a location other than a crosswalk, crossing the intersection diagonally or otherwise failing to exercise reasonable care.

Liss & Marion has succeeded in many pedestrian cases for children too. Depending upon their age, children are held to a lesser standard of care since children generally do not exercise the same degree of caution for their own safety when compared to an adult. Liss & Marion has successfully prosecuted cases against motorists whose vehicles strike small children who suddenly dart into the roadway. The attorney must focus on the specific facts of each case to prove that the motorist was negligent in failing to maintain a proper lookout and/or failing to maintain control of the vehicle. Certain circumstances place drivers on notice that a child may unexpectedly run onto the roadway. For example, areas where other children are playing along the road, areas near school zones or playgrounds, and other circumstances require a motorist to exercise caution and a higher duty of care.
