Kalka & Baer recently settled a case on behalf of a hit and run victim’s
family. The victim was walking home from purchasing his dinner when he
was struck and negligently killed by a driver from A-Tow towing company.
According to witnesses, the driver struck the victim sending him 10 feet
back into the road. The witness explains he saw the two truck driver get
out of his truck notice the victim still moving only to return to the
cab and run the victim over again which killed him.
Attorney Kalka used expert witnesses, mathematic calculations and photos of the intersection
to prove the truck driver was negligent. Kalka explained that the intersection
of University Ave and Pryor Drive consists of heavy pedestrian traffic
both day and night. Pedestrian traffic is controlled by walk signals in
all directions and while there was not a painted crosswalk outlining the
pedestrian pathway, there is a path for pedestrians as outlined by the
concrete walkway in the median of University Ave. The
Atlanta wrongful death attorney also used an equation to measure the illumination field of the tow truck
driver’s headlights to explain how the driver was speeding.
Kalka & Bear successfully proved their client’s death was a direct result of
the tow truck driver’s negligence. The attorneys recovered a sufficient
sum to compensation the victim’s estate for funeral costs, pain
and suffering, punitive damages and medical expenses.
If you or someone you know has
suffered injuries due to the negligence of another, you deserve to get the compensation
you need to move forward.
