Speeding Driver Causes Pedestrian’s Death

Cindy was crossing the street to join her youth group, which was gathering in front of her church. She crossed near the crosswalk. The defendant, who had a record of speeding, was speeding down the street and struck Cindy, causing her death. We argued that the defendant should have seen the youth group on the side of the street and recognized the potential for other young people to be in the area. We successfully argued that by speeding the defendant lost the right of way and was responsible for Cindy’s death. Our efforts resulted in a significant judgment against the defendant. His insurance company paid the judgment.
