Pedestrian Hit by Taxi

Our pedestrian accident attorneys represented a 29-year-old man in San Francisco Superior Court for the loss of a toe. His foot was run over by a driver who lost control of his car because of the actions of a negligent taxi driver. Our client was standing in the street at the corner of Duboce and Valencia when a taxi, traveling westbound on Duboce, made a left turn into oncoming traffic. A motorist traveling eastbound on Duboce swerved to avoid the taxi. The car skidded out of control and ran over our client’s left foot, crushing two toes. The cab driver denied making a left turn and argued that our client was negligent for standing in the street while waiting to cross. After mediation and three settlement conferences, we were able to conclude the case the day before trial for $425,000.
