Taking a stroll along the sidewalk is a pleasure most of us enjoy. However, when a driver is not paying attention, it can be dangerous. Dixon Law Office founder G. Grant Dixon III represented a woman who was walking on the sidewalk when a driver drove over the curb and hit her. “She was seriously injured,” Grant said. “She was pinned and trapped under the car. She was in the hospital for months and required treatment for many months after that.” The driver claimed he fell asleep at the wheel in the middle of the day. Grant took the case and vigorously pursued the driver and owner of the car.
The results of the work were impressive. The court awarded the woman $4,000,000 in compensation for her injuries. “The size of the verdict shows how seriously this wonderful woman was hurt,” Grant continued. “She was simply going to the store to buy some milk and her life was changed forever.” If you or a loved one has been injured as a pedestrian, call us at Dixon Law Office.
