SAN FRANCISCO, Dec. 3, 2019 /PRNewswire-PRWeb/ -- The case (Case No. STK-CV-UAT-2017-9963), filed in San Joaquin County Superior Court, stems from clients of Li, founder of the Law Offices of Teresa Li, PC, who were both struck by an uninsured driver while pedestrians in a crosswalk in the last lane of a nine-lane crosswalk. The 54-year-old and 59-year-old plaintiffs were hit by a vehicle traveling at 45 mph in Stockton.
According to court documents, the plaintiffs were crossing March Lane using a marked crosswalk while the pedestrian light was on, and had almost made it to the other side of the street when the traffic light suddenly turned green. Court documents further state that the defendant allegedly failed to yield to the plaintiffs and hit them. It is disputed whether the plaintiffs had a white pedestrian light when they first stepped onto the crosswalk. The plaintiffs suffered traumatic brain injury, fractures to their arms, legs, and facial bones, and have post-traumatic stress disorder.
"The blinking light at the crosswalk was 18 seconds before the lawsuit, and it is now 27 seconds," concluded attorney for the plaintiffs Li. "I am glad that the City of Stockton finally was able to make this right and keep the public safe."
Teresa Li has extensive experience and success in representing plaintiffs in personal injury cases. The police officer in the aforementioned case initially found the plaintiffs to be at fault for jaywalking, yet Li helped them obtain $2,650,000 in a settlement.
