Landmark Case Five

Automobile Accident

Settlement: $900,000
Attorneys: Charles Cooper
Facts: Our client who was a 26-year-old young woman was standing outside of her friends’ car in a parking lot. At that time, an employee of the parking facility pulled out of a parking spot in reverse without first looking to observe our client. Our client immediately attempted to re-enter her car so as to avoid the other vehicle.

As she was closing the door her hand was crushed by the other car. As a result of this accident our client required six surgeries and has permanent damage to her hand and fingers. The insurance policy covering the striking vehicle was only $15,000.00. However, our office was able to prove that the employee of the parking lot was in the course and scope of her employment at the time of the accident. As such, the parking facility’s general liability insurance carrier settled this case at mediation for $900,000.00.
