Woman Awarded $6M For Injuries Sustained While Crossing Street


This is a settlement for the Personal Injury lawsuit.

Sacramento, CA: A $6 million settlement has been awarded to a woman who suffered disabling brain injury when she was struck by a car while on a pedestrian crossing in Sacramento. Cathy Lui, just 25 years of age in 2007, when the accident occurred, was hit while on or near a crosswalk located in an "S" curve on Freeport Boulevard in Sacramento.

Liu filed a personal injury suit against the City, alleging that the curve impaired motorists' ability to see the crosswalk. The jury hearing the case agreed, and assigned 51 percent of the blame to the city, with the rest going to Liu and the motorist. It awarded more than $18 million, but the attorneys had previously agreed that Liu's damages could not exceed $6 million.
