Jury Awards $1 Million to Injury Victim Hit by Washington, DC Parking Enforcement Van

5 stars

personal injury lawyers chris regan and pat reganRegan Zambri Long PLLC has recently won a $1 million verdict on behalf of a woman who was injured when she was hit by a Washington, DC, parking enforcement van. For more information, reach out to a DC car accident attorney.

According to the complaint, the parking meter attendant had gotten out of the van to write a ticket. The attendant left the van in gear with the keys in the ignition. As a result, the van began to roll down the hill. It accelerated for over a block before jumping the curb and hitting the victim as she was about to enter the Warner Theatre to watch her daughters perform in The Nutcracker.

As a result of the impact, the woman suffered three fractured vertebrae.

Despite having immediately been aware of the cause of the incident, the DC government refused for almost five years to accept responsibility. Only when the victim had forced it to the eve of trial did the DC government even admit fault; even then, it continued to attempt to minimize the severity of the victim’s spinal injuries.

“Our client, unfortunately, suffered greatly because of the carelessness of a city worker,” said Patrick Regan, senior partner at Regan Zambri Long PLLC and counsel for the victim. “The fact that Washington, DC refused to accept any responsibility for the accident until the trial was imminent is unacceptable.”

“This verdict will help our client close a painful chapter in her life,” added Chris Regan, partner and counsel for the victim. “Hopefully, the city will learn from this verdict that when it tries to shirk its duty to do right by people hurt by its carelessness, its citizen-jurors will hold it fully accountable.”
