Pedestrian Accident Lawyer


Bowie, Pedestrian Accident Lawyers

Maria Patterson and George Patterson co-tried a pedestrian accident case in the Circuit Court for Prince George’s County in Upper Marlboro. The pedestrian accident occurred in Upper Marlboro, where a man pumping gas was struck by a car.  The driver of the car was involved in a car accident on Route 301 and lost control of her van before hitting Mr. Patterson's client.  The client had a knee surgery and his insurance company, State Farm, refused to tender $50,000 of available underinsured motorist coverage. Shortly before trial, State Farm offered only $15,000 to settle the pedestrian accident case.

The 3 day jury trial resulted in an award of all the pedestrian accident victim's medical bills, lost wages, plus $150,000 in pain and suffering damages. Lawyer Maria Patterson cross-examined the orthopedic surgeon hired by State Farm, Richard Wells M.D.. Doctor Wells explained to the Prince George’s County jury that the knee surgery performed on the client was unrelated to the impact that broke his leg, just below the knee surgery site. Instead, Dr. Wells relied on pre-existing complaints of knee pain to claim that the knee surgery was the result of pre-existing degenerative changes. The jury verdict suggests that Dr. Wells’ allegations, among others, were rejected.
Pedestrian accident lawyers George and Maria Patterson have litigated over one hundred pedestrian accident cases.  Many of those cases involved fatalities, alleged dart-outs by children, intoxicated pedestrians, and pedestrians outside of marked crosswalks.
