PWRFL settles case against King County for $7,450,000 after our client is run over by Metro bus.

Our client was crossing the street in a crosswalk at the Kent Transit Center.  A Metro bus driver failed to come to a complete stop at a stop sign before turning into the crosswalk that our client was walking in.  The Metro bus knocked our client to the ground and ran over her legs. 

Our client’s husband – who had been waiting for his wife to pick her up – witnessed the entire incident.

Our client spent nearly two months at Harborview and underwent several reconstructive surgeries on her legs.  Despite a remarkable recovery, our client was left with no movement in her left knee and severe scarring on both of her legs. She was unable to return to work after the collision. 

PWRFL filed a lawsuit against King County for the Metro bus driver’s negligence.  The case settled three months before trial for $7,450,000.
