Pedestrian Hurt in Trolley Accident

Posted By Houston Personal Injury Attorney || 27-Nov-2010

A woman crossing corner of 40th and Spruce streets in Philadelphia was hit and injured recently by a trolley, reports say.

The woman, who was unidentified other than what witnesses report as a black woman in her 60s at the 40th Street intersection shortly after 6 p.m. late last month, was evidently trying to catch the trolley when she slipped and the vehicle hit her.

She was taken via ambulance to the Hospital of the University of Pennsylvania, where she was treated and released within a few hours. Some witnesses said she flipped over several time in the air before landing back on the ground, reports say. Some of those who assisted her afterward were left with blood on hands and clothing. The accident tied up traffic for at least an hour, and the investigation was continuing at last report.

After an accident, the responsible party's insurance company may try to reduce the claim amount. Commonly, insurance adjusters are trained to get information from the injured to assist in reducing the claim. Though some insurers are less guilty of this practice than others, it is important to realize that insurance companies are profit-oriented corporations and reducing claims results in increased profits for shareholders. This can create a situation for the injured in which they are offered a settlement that does not truly reflect the damages suffered. If you accept this settlement, you lose the ability to get more money should your injuries require further medical treatments. It is critical that victims get legal assistance in any personal injury case, and The Doan Law Firm is prepared to fight relentlessly for your rights.
