$275,000 Car Accident/Premises Liability
A fifty-five year old client had just finished paying for his gas at a gas station when he was hit by a car in the parking lot driven by a mechanic for the gas station who was backing up the vehicle. Our office was able to prove that the gas station employee was negligent, driving without a license and violating company policy by driving a car he was not authorized to drive. As a result of the accident, our client tore the meniscus in his knee, requiring arthroscopic surgery. The case settled for $275,000.
