A Metrobus (WMATA) operating in the District of Columbia Wednesday morning struck a pedestrian at the Mall, near 7th Streeet, N.W. According to news reports, the pedestrian was conscious and breathing when the ambulance arrived. The pedestrian was taken to the hospital, and no further reports are available at this time.
August is one of the biggest months for tourism in our area, whether it be on the Mall in Washington, D.C, the Inner Harbor in Baltimore, or the waterfront in Annapolis, Maryland. Please exercise an overabundance of caution when walking on the sidewalks and streets of the Washington/Baltimore Region. If you are in your car, be aware of the extra pedestrian traffic caused by the increase in visitors to our area.
If you are the victim of a Metro crash, or a pedestrian injury caused by a distracted or careless driver, please call the Law Offices of Clark & Steinhorn. Mr. Clark and Mr. Steinhorn have a combined 61 years of legal experience between them. Both partners have experience with both Metro cases and pedestrian cases. Mr. Steinhorn recovered $500,000.00 for a client who was injured many years ago, when the Maryland cap on non-economic damages only allowed recovery of $350,000.00. Tthe facts were so egregious that the truck company offered an additional $150,000.00 for economic losses, which included future costs for assistance as the client aged, and became less able to perform upkeep on her house and grounds.
Robert V. Clark, Jr. has served as lead trial counsel in a class action bus crash case against WMATA that led to the recovery of more than One Million Dollars for the injured victims on the bus.
