Broken Toes As Pedestrian: $180,000.00 settlement

Our client was a 53 year old undocumented worker who overstayed her travel visa to the United States. She worked for cash as a house cleaner and had no Social Security Number. While walking through a local supermarket parking lot, our client’s right foot was run over by an auto whose driver was attempting to park her car. Injuries included fractures to three toes which required surgery to repair. Although our client was living in the United States illegally, she was entitled to bring a claim against the driver of the auto that struck her. We did so and the driver’s insurer paid the $8,000.00 maximum under the Massachusetts No-Fault law plus $180,000.00 for our client’s pain and suffering and her medical bills—all of which were waived by the hospital.
