$7 Million Awarded To Woman Hit By Metro Van
The Seattle Times reports King County has agreed to pay what is believed to be the largest amount the county has ever paid a single plaintiff – $7 million to a woman hit by Metro van.
In November 2007, the woman was riding her Vespa scooter to work as an operating room nurse when she was struck by the Metro van. The driver failed to yield the right of way at a stop sign.
The impact with the van caused the woman to be thrown 40 feet, suffer severe internal injuries and compound leg fractures. She was in a coma for several days following the accident and has not been able to return to work.
