When a person is injured as the result of another person’s negligence, they can file a civil lawsuit against the party responsible to seek compensation for their damages. A Roanoke Personal Injury Lawsuit was filed by a Gretna, Virginia, woman in Pittsylvania County Circuit Court recently in connection with injuries caused by her husband’s alleged negligence.
According to an article from GoDanRiver.com, the incident occurred at the couple’s home on Feb. 25, 2013. Reports indicate the victim was walking along the driveway when she slipped and fell, causing her leg to land in the path of a 2001 Freightliner motor home that her husband was reversing. The vehicle ran over the woman’s leg, causing injuries that required the limb to be amputated.
The woman filed suit against her husband and the couple’s two insurance companies, claiming her husband’s failure to keep the vehicle under control while backing up was responsible for her injuries. She is seeking a total of $25 million for her losses.
The Roanoke Personal Injury Lawyers with Skolrood Law Firm recognize how expensive it can be to overcome an injury caused by another person’s negligence. That is why the firm is hopeful a decision in the case brings a sense of closure to the victim.
