The client was a pedestrian crossing the street when she was hit by a yellow school bus making a left-hand turn. As a result of the impact, she was forced to fall to the ground and sustained an injury to her shoulder and lower back, both of which resulted in surgeries. At trial, the defendants argued that she crossed unexpectedly in the middle of the street in between two parked vehicles and that the bus was able to stop in time and not make contact with her. The defendants also argued that the client had a history of back problems and that the injuries claimed to her shoulder and lower back were pre-existing and not caused by this accident. After a full trial, a jury found the defendants 70 percent at fault and awarded the client $2.8 million.
