$18.4 Million – City Failed To Install Left Turn Lane

In the largest out‑of‑court settlement in its history, the City of Fremont, California, paid a 14-year-old boy who was paralyzed when he was thrown from a pick‑up truck that was rear-ended by another vehicle when it was stopped to turn left. We alleged the City knew for over two years before the accident that the busy intersection was in need of a left turn lane. The funds received in the settlement were used to purchase an annuity that provided lifetime payments of $18.4 million.
