Disabled Driver Strikes Pedestrian

Our attorneys handled a pedestrian liability claim on behalf of a 30-year-old woman who sustained severe pelvic and lower extremity fractures as a result of being struck by an automobile. The vehicle was being driven by a disabled driver who had no function in his lower extremities. He had contracted with the defendants to install a hand-control device in his vehicle, to enable him to brake and accelerate. The defendants included the negligent operator, the manufacturer of the hand control device, the installer and the dealership that facilitated the original sale of the defendant’s car.
