a memorable
00:05
motor vehicle accident case that i
00:08
handled
00:09
involved a pedestrian who was
00:12
run over by a car i represented the
00:15
pedestrian and he was crossing
00:17
the street um outside of a crosswalk
00:20
and so the insurance company immediately
00:22
denied the claim
00:24
when i went to visit the pedestrian
00:27
my client at the when he was getting
00:30
rehabilitation at a nursing home for his
00:32
injuries
00:32
i visited him and i quickly realized
00:34
that he
00:36
is unable to communicate well he has a
00:38
disability most of his answers
00:40
would ten would just be yes the word yes
00:43
and you couldn’t really explain what
00:45
happened
00:46
and so i knew that if if the only
00:47
version of events would be
00:49
what the defendant driver says that’s a
00:51
big problem
00:52
we’re not we’re not going to get the
00:54
full story so i went out
00:56
to the scene of the accident i looked
00:58
for
00:59
any again any footage is there something
01:02
is there a business nearby
01:04
so i found a bar really close to where
01:06
the collision occurred
01:07
it had a camera pointing to almost
01:09
exactly where the collision occurred
01:11
and i called them and they said they’ve
01:14
deleted
01:15
the footage and i was unfortunate and i
01:18
later found out that the
01:20
the driver of the car actually worked at
01:22
that bar
01:24
and so i thought that was suspicious and
01:26
then i realized well if he’s
01:28
leaving the bar then he wasn’t on the
01:32
main road that the client was
01:35
crossing and therefore um it’s not
01:38
my client’s fault so i needed proof of
01:41
that
01:42
so i obtained the body worn camera
01:44
footage from the
01:45
police officers who responded and that
01:47
was incredibly helpful because i could
01:49
see
01:50
on the footage where my client was laid
01:53
out on the ground how close was he to
01:55
the
01:55
to the sidewalk statements made by the
01:58
the driver that that i wasn’t looking
02:01
when i turned
02:03
this direction i didn’t look in that
02:04
direction and i was coming out of here
02:06
and so the insurance company went from
02:09
completely denying the
02:11
the claim to paying hundreds of
02:13
thousands of dollars to resolve the case
02:16
without litigation
