Posted on February 26th, 2008 by Zane Cagle
POLICY LIMITS SETTLEMENT
Plaintiff was a pedestrian and was hit by a car driven by the Defendant while walking along the side of the roadway near Sikeston, Missouri. Plaintiff suffered serious injuries to his left arm and leg which required hospitalization and numerous surgical procedures. Plaintiff alleged that the Defendant negligently failed to use the high-beam headlights of his car in order to see Plaintiff; failed to keep careful look out; failed to take corrective actions to prevent crashing into Plaintiff with his car; and crashed into Plaintiff because he was traveling on the shoulder of the roadway.
Plaintiff alleged the cost of outstanding medical bills and lost wages because of Defendant’s aforementioned negligence. The parties reached a settlement for policy limits prior to trial.
