John obtained a settlement for an elderly lady who was hit while in the crosswalk of a Public’s parking lot.  The driver was not paying attention and ran right over her, breaking her femur.  However the insurance company first blamed her, before she hired John.   Her injury never fully healed and required over a year of rehabilitation.   John and the client walked away from mediation where the defense had offered only $500,000.  Before trial, the case settled for $825,000.   Unfortunately, the client’s leg has still never fully healed.
