SETTLEMENT EXCEEDING ONE MILLION DOLLARS IN CONSTRUCTION ZONE ACCIDENT
An elderly couple was attempting to negotiate a left-turn through a construction zone one evening after all construction workers had gone home for the day. While making the turn, a horrible collision occurred leading to both of their deaths. The initial police investigation failed to include significant factors involving the ongoing construction at the intersection. As a result, the traffic homicide report provided very little assistance in presenting the claims.
Martinez Manglardi and its investigative team, including several forensic and engineering experts, were able to capture crucial evidence supporting the fact that the construction company had violated basic safety principles of roadway construction. Martinez Manglardi proved that numerous factors present on the night of the accident, including the construction company’s failure to adhere to fundamental roadway construction safety standards contributed to the accident. A settlement was ultimately reached in excess of One Million Dollars.
