Victorious Verdict: Attorneys Secure $650,000 for Mother Injured in Motor Vehicle vs. Pedestrian Accident
In 2016, Andrey R. Yurtsan took on the representation of a case involving a mother who was walking with her young daughter to school when they were involved in a motor vehicle vs. pedestrian accident. The defendant rolled past a stop sign and hit the client and her daughter at a low rate of speed, causing a back injury for the mother. After years of litigation, in 2020, Mr. Yurtsan, together with co-counsel, prepared the case for trial. The defense made low settlement offers before trial, as they disputed the extent of the client’s injury and medical treatment. However, after a hard-fought jury trial, the attorneys were able to convince the jury to award $650,000 in compensation to the client. This compensation was far greater than the best pre-trial offer from defense.
