Fort Myers Personal Injury Attorney Randall L. Spivey Achieves Settlement for Client Injured When a Work Van Ran a Red LightOctober 15, 2020 | Category: Automobile Accidents | Share
Fort Myers Personal Injury Attorney Randall L. Spivey achieved a settlement for our client who was seriously injured when a worker driving a company ran a red light and crashed into her vehicle in Fort Myers, Florida.
Because the insurance company for the defendants refused to provide a reasonable settlement offer to compensate the victim of this accident which she did not cause, Spivey Law Firm, Personal Injury Attorneys, P.A. filed a lawsuit on our client’s behalf to seek just compensation for her injuries and damages.
This case highlights the dangers of intersections and the serious ramifications of inattentive drivers who fail to obey traffic signals. In this case, the defendant driver ran a red light as our client turned left with a green arrow. As our client was lawfully crossing the intersection to turn left, the defendant driver, who had a red signal, failed to stop and crashed into our client’s vehicle at a high rate of speed. Our client was transported to the hospital due to her injuries from the car accident. The accident caused severe injuries including a shoulder injury that required a surgical repair.
Florida Statute Section 316.074(1) provides that “the driver of any vehicle shall obey the instructions of any official traffic control device applicable thereto, placed in accordance with the provisions of this chapter unless otherwise directed by a police officer . . .” In this case, the defendant driver violated that statute, and Spivey Law Firm, Personal Injury Attorneys, P.A. was able to argue that the violation of the statute was evidence of the driver’s negligence in the civil case. Our firm was then able to focus our efforts on maximizing the damages recoverable for our client.
Fort Myers Car Accident Lawyer Randall L. Spivey filed a lawsuit against the defendant driver as well as his employer who owned the vehicle he was driving while he was on the job. While the defendants refused to pay a reasonable settlement after the accident, after thorough litigation building our client’s case, the defendants ended up paying the full amount of the defendants’ insurance limits to compensate our client.
