$240,000 – Pedestrian Hit by Car at Bellingham Intersection
Intersections can be dangerous places, especially for pedestrians unprotected by the structure of a vehicle. When a car hits a pedestrian, severe injuries can result even at relatively low speeds.
Kevin was attempting to cross the street when he was hit by a car. Though the car sustained only minor cosmetic damage, Kevin’s leg was broken.
Though the at-fault driver was covered by a $100,000 policy limit, that amount fell short of what Kevin had to pay in order to heal. Whatcom County personal injury attorney Bill Coats pursued a settlement that fully compensated his client, Kevin.
This is one more example of how the experience and skill of a personal injury lawyer can make the difference of thousands of dollars for victims. This is not money that an insurance company will volunteer to pay, and will in fact try to pay as little as possible every way they can. Bill Coats Law doesn’t let them get away with this. If you were hurt because of someone else’s mistake, it pays to call Bill Coats Law. Learn more about pedestrians hit by cars here.
