AgnewBrusavich Obtains $100,000 Settlement In Case Involving Negligent Driver

A female victim was walking her dog in a crosswalk when she was hit by a negligent driver. The victim was knocked down and suffered a foot injury. Although there was no fracture, it was extremely painful for several weeks thereafter requiring physical therapy. The claim was made that the stress of the event and the sequel of the injury triggered the victim’s underlying autoimmune disorder, resulting in alopecia universalis (severe hair loss) several months after the accident. The case settled at mediation for $100,000 plus the cost of mediation and an expert witness deposition fee.

The importance of this result is not the dollar amount. Rather, it is significant because it spotlights the legal principle that a wrongdoer “takes his victim as he finds her”, i.e., it is no defense that the victim was more susceptible to harm or injury. Of additional importance is the reminder that knowledgeable and credible medical experts are a must.



    The entire AgnewBrusavich team took over everything and were a tremendous help. The insurance company was dealt with, the settlement was received, and I was very pleased with the results. I would not hesitate to recommend AgnewBrusavich to anyone.

    The team at Agnew Brusavich cannot come more highly recommended. If you should have some sort of personal injury case, particularly if you are a cyclist, I cannot think of a better team to handle a personal injury case.

    Agnew and Brusavich helped me so much after an injury from a car accident. I was shaken up from the experience but they made me feel so comfortable and truly showed they cared about my case.

    I was referred to Agnew Brusavich, and after meeting with Gerry I felt much better. He and his team handled all the communication between the insurance companies and opposing attorneys and kept me up-to-date throughout the process.
