SUMMARY OF CASE
Our client was standing on the sidewalk when two vehicles collided within the intersection causing one vehicle to jump the sidewalk and strike him. The two vehicles were a Chrysler and an Audi. The Chrysler claimed he entered the intersection against a yellow traffic light. The Audi driver claimed that he was traveling at 22 mph and that the Chrysler entered against a steady red light causing the accident. Our firm's accident reconstruction engineer was able to scientifically prove that the Audi was traveling at 38.5 mph at the time of the impact, thus contributing to the cause of this accident. This evidence was crucial in proving the Audi's liability.
