    Pedestrian Accident Due to Negligent Driver

    Northern Virginia Personal Injury Attorney Settles Pedestrian Accident Case for 2.15 Million Dollars

    Our client, a mother, wife, and loved community member lost her life due to a negligent driver. The substantial injuries sustained by our client, eventually proved fatal. Our client was merely walking her three dogs within a crosswalk, when she was struck by a car. The Defendant received a citation from the police, and was found guilty in traffic court for failing to pay proper attention.

    We sued this negligent driver and sought justice on behalf of our client and her family. In filing suit for negligence, wrongful death and survival, we made it abundantly clear that this driver should be held responsible for her total failure to yield to a pedestrian, and to pay adequate attention to her surroundings. This driver’s negligence cost this family everything.

    Once the case was filed, Defense Counsel argued that our client could not recover because she was contributorily negligent, or in the alternative that this was an unavoidable accident (due to sun glare). Although there were no eyewitnesses, the Defendant pursued these theories vigorously.

    Nonetheless, we were able to settle prior to trial. After two mediations, and extensive back-and-forth discussions, we settled this claim for 2.15 million dollars.

    Wrongful Death of a Minor Child

    Parties involved remain confidential in this contested liability wrongful death case.

    Plaintiff was the parent of a minor child who died as a result of the negligence of a nurse. The minor child was mentally challenged and required the use of a breathing tube in order to maintain proper oxygen levels. A specific order was signed by the physician in charge, requiring constant supervision, of the child and the use of proper restraints to protect the breathing tube. At some point, the minor child removed the breathing tube and subsequently entered into a coma, and ultimately died.

    The defendant nurse maintained that she had given appropriate supervision, however, discovery and review of the medical records reflected that she had stepped away from the child's room while he was unrestrained. The record indicated that a sufficient amount of time had passed for the child to suffer an anoxic event after removing the breathing tube, which ultimately led to his death.

    The case was further complicated by a state medicare lien which exceeded three hundred thousand dollars. Kevin Ruby negotiated more than a 75% reduction of the medicare bill, which enabled the case to settle.
