Pedestrian Injured in Taxi Accident

Our personal injury attorneys achieved a significant settlement for a pedestrian who was struck by a taxicab while crossing the street outside the crosswalk. In cases like this, the State of California follows a doctrine called “comparative fault.” If the injured person was partially at fault, he or she cannot recover 100 percent of the damages. Instead, the plaintiff’s recovery is reduced by his or her share of the fault. In this case, while the plaintiff was partially at fault, so too was the taxi driver. Through vigorous argumentation at mediation, our client received fair compensation.
