Favorable Settlement Reached in Admitted Negligence School Bus Accident Case
Bill Lindsay: We limited a jury verdict to under $500,000 in an admitted negligence case where the plaintiff, a school girl, suffered severe facial disfigurement and other injuries when struck as she crossed in front of a school bus with lights flashing. The plaintiff was represented by one of the leading trial lawyers in the state-Pat Salvi-and asked the jury for $2.8 million. Plaintiff’s settlement demand was never below seven figures.
