Imagine your child is struck by a FedEx truck and left permanently handicapped. It would change your entire family’s life. In addition to your child’s unnecessary pain and suffering, you would need to cope with insurmountable medical bills and the potential purchase of a new home or vehicle in order to accommodate your child’s needs. Other family members, including you yourself, may need counseling, and you may never fully recover emotionally.
Though nothing can completely right the wrongs in such an unfortunate situation, financial compensation could, at the very least, allow you to live a comfortable life. You’d be furious if police deemed the driver who hit your child — and uprooted life as you know it — to have no fault in the accident. If the injuries cannot be corrected, you’d at least assume FedEx would be required to pay for the negligence of their driver, right?
Well, unfortunately, our firm once represented a very similar case. In that scenario, the father was blamed for the accident because they were jaywalking across the street. Police said the driver had no fault in the collision, and multiple attorneys refused to file a lawsuit on the family’s behalf. Luckily, a friend of the family referred them to us. At Raskin & Kremins, we saw the case differently.
