Girl hit by car walking to school

We represented a young 12 year old girl who was injured on her way to school. There was construction in the area and the sidewalk that was part of her usual route to school was closed. When she attempted to run across the street mid-block she was struck by a vehicle and suffered injury to her hip and leg, as well as psychological trauma. No notification of the sidewalk closure was provided to the school or residents in the area that would have allowed alternate routes to be planned. The driver and the construction company shared in liability and we reached a settlement of $72,000.00.
