WALKUP ATTORNEYS OBTAIN $4,000,000 VERDICT IN S.F. PEDESTRIAN FATALITY TRIAL

A Walkup Law Firm trial team including partner Matthew Davis, associate Jeff Clause and headed by senior partner Michael Kelly obtained a $4 million verdict in San Francisco Superior Court on Wednesday, February 22, 2017 against the Golden Gate Bridge Highway and Transportation District arising from the wrongful death of Lori Helmer, a 51 year old finance executive who was struck and killed by a Golden Gate Transit bus on November 6, 2014 at the intersection of Van Ness and Lombard streets while she was out for a morning jog. When she was fatally struck, Ms. Helmer was crossing Van Ness from west to east when a left turning Route 54 bus ran over her, crushing her abdomen and pelvis with the rear dual wheels, resulting in her death two hours later at San Francisco General Hospital.
