Mike Nakamura recently settled a case involving a pedestrian in Montgomery County. The client, a retired gentleman, was a pedestrian in the crosswalk and properly proceeding with the “Walk” signal. The defendant driver was not paying attention and turned into the crosswalk. The driver then hit the pedestrian, who landed on the hood and then the street. He suffered a serious upper arm fracture, which required surgical repair with plates and screws. He did have a good physical recovery, and was left with a residual scar. His medical expenses were $22,000 and Mike successfully settled the case for $95,000.
