Client Receives Over $1 Million Settlement in Pedestrian Personal Injury Case

May 10, 2017

GTTC attorneys Mark Wilner and Jeffrey M. Thomas, obtained a $1,085,000 settlement for long-time Seattle residents, Cynthia and Marguerite Civa.  “The Sisters,” as they are affectionately known throughout the Capitol Hill neighborhood, were severely injured when struck by an SUV as they were crossing Broadway Avenue East on their way home.  Both victims were in a designated marked crosswalk when they were struck.

Following a failed early mediation, GTTC litigated the Civas’ case in King County Superior Court and eventually resolved the matter for a settlement involving payments of $200,000 limits from a personal lines auto policy, $850,000 from an excess business auto policy following coverage disputes, and $35,000 from underinsured motorist coverage.
