    $600,000 settlement – pedestrian hit by car

    Florida is known to be one of the most dangerous places to walk in America.  That’s because pedestrians are often ignored by cars and trucks on Florida’s roadways.

    Leighton Panoff Law’s John Leighton and Max Panoff represented an out of state visitor who was struck by a car while crossing a busy roadway in South Florida. Miraculously the pedestrian was not killed, but sustained orthopedic and neurologic injuries. The firm was able to obtain 100% of the insurance proceeds available to the client.

    The man crossed in an area where there was no crosswalk, and was hit by the passing car in Hallandale Beach.  A confidential settlement for the full liability insurance coverage was obtained to provide this man with compensation for his injuries.  In a 10 year period in Florida, over 5,000 pedestrians have lost their lives when struck by cars.  Florida continues to be a place where walking is a hazardous activity.  We continue to work hard to make the state a safer place to walk.
