Auto Accident case is resolved with a significant amount of dollars

By Michael Nichols
Categories: Personal Injury

Attorney Wendy Schiller-Nichols was able to resolve an auto accident case, wherein her client was hit by a vehicle when he exited a grocery store and was walking to his car.  The grocery store video appears to show that Wendy Schiller-Nichols’ client walked out of the grocery store and as he enters that portion of the roadway right in front of the grocery store, the client is hit by a vehicle.  It appears on the video that the client fails to look either way for traffic as he enters the crosswalk, traveled portion of the roadway.  The at-fault driver admitted to police that she accidently hit the accelerator instead of the brake.  When resolving this case, comparative fault was  taken into consideration for both Ms. Schiller-Nichols’ client and the at-fault driver.
