Crane Truck Hits Senior Citizen

Walkup truck litigation attorneys settled a wrongful death claim on behalf of the heirs of a vibrant 72-year-old woman who was walking to work in the SOMA district when she was struck by a large industrial truck. A vigorous woman for her age, the decedent helped support her daughter and two grandchildren. The operator of the rig failed to yield as the decedent crossed the street with the right of way. Without substantial economic loss, the focus in the case was on establishing and proving the unique, close bond the adult plaintiff shared with her mother. At mediation our attorneys offered extensive interviews with co-workers and friends of the decedent, describing the tight-knit family relationship.
