Todd & Weld LLP, represented a 58-year-old woman who was struck from behind by an automobile while she was walking along the shoulder of a snowy road (the sidewalks were covered with snow). The driver was cited for operating to endanger, improper passing and unsafe lane change.
The client sustained multiple fractures to both legs. In light of medical records that failed to reveal the true extent of the client's physical limitations, Mr. Catalano and Ms. Thompson arranged for the production of a “day-in-the-life” video to demonstrate her difficulties in performing most basic daily activities. After submitting the video, the demand for settlement was increased, resulting in the eventual settlement of $365,000.
