Pedestrian Injured by San Francisco Light Rail

Walkup attorneys negotiated a combination cash and annuity settlement having a present value of $2 million on behalf of a 16-year-old girl who was struck by a San Francisco Municipal Railway train. In the collision, the teen sustained amputation of her left lower leg below the knee. At the time she was struck, she was crossing the street with a green light. The settlement was paid on behalf of the municipality. Although the defense attempted to prove that the child should have heard the approaching vehicle, our attorneys demonstrated that the plaintiff had done nothing wrong and that the injury was entirely the fault of the Municipal Railway driver.
