$2 Million settlement reached in Wayne County pedestrian accident case
Engineers concluded the intersection was unnecessarily dangerous for pedestrians
On August 27, a $2,050,000 settlement was reached in a wrongful death case scheduled to go to trial in Wayne County, Pa. The accident involved the death of a Wayne County woman who was struck and killed by a Ford pickup truck on the corner of 7th and Church Streets in downtown Honesdale, Pa.
A case was filed by attorneys Daniel Munley and Julia Munley of Munley Law Personal Injury Attorneys, Scranton.
As a result of the accident, the victim suffered significant pain and suffering, and irreversible brain damage, which led to her death a few days later. It was always the position of the victim’s family that the change to the one-way street configuration and misplacement of crosswalks led to this accident.
Over the course of the case, the attorneys from Munley Law Personal Injury Attorneys retained engineers who, after reviewing the site, concluded that the intersection was unnecessarily dangerous to pedestrians.
While no amount of financial compensation could ever make up for the loss of a loved one, the family of the woman killed takes great comfort in knowing that since the filing of the lawsuit, changes have been made to improve pedestrian safety at that intersection. It is our hope that these changes will prevent another senseless tragedy like this from happening to another family.
