TRUCK AND PEDESTRIAN ACCIDENT
An 11-year-old boy was on vacation with his family in the Florida Keys. The boy ran into the street ahead of his father and was struck by a truck. The boy suffered extensive injuries and required multiple surgical procedures. The investigating officers performed a cursory investigation and concluded that the boy was solely at fault for the accident.
However, Wolf & Pravato was able to show that the truck driver was not paying proper attention and that the accident could have been avoided if the truck driver had been more vigilant or taken evasive action once the child began crossing the street. The case was litigated and resulted in a recovery of the full insurance policy limits, which exceeded one million dollars.
