Landscaper Struck by Car Settles for $360,000

April, 2013

This motor vehicle versus pedestrian accident action arose from a collision that occurred when our client was struck by the side of the road by an elderly driver.  Our client was a landscaper.  A vehicle he was standing behind was a landscaping truck and had its rear doors open and a ramp descending from the interior of the vehicle to the pavement. There was an orange hazard cone placed behind the landscaping truck and its hazard lights were flashing. Defendant was in her mid-eighties and suffering from progressive Parkinson’s disease.
