Hit by car while crossing the street

Marlborough, Massachusetts man hit by car while crossing the street case

Involves an elderly gentleman and veteran who was out for his daily walk in the City of Marlborough, MA.  He was struck and injured by a woman driving her car, who failed to observe him while crossing the street.

This gentleman was an active, healthy and avid walker.  He was out on a daily walk, when he was crossing Pleasant Street in the City of Marlborough, when he was struck and injured by a woman who negligently operated a motor vehicle, who went through the intersection without realizing he was crossing the street.  This claimant suffered a serious injury to his shoulder and had to be taken to the hospital where he was treated and released.  He ultimately suffered a significant restricted range of motion in his shoulder and he was no longer able to perform many of his regular activities, including playing golf.

The defendant’s insurance company, maintaining a hard-line position suggesting that the claimant walked into traffic without first observing the oncoming vehicle; and as such, refused to offer any settlement.  Suit was filed against the defendant operator.  It was clear in the course of the deposition of the defendant that she was not paying attention to him and ultimately causing the accident. This case was successfully resolved for the full policy limits of $100,000.00.
