Caroline Maurer Victim in Atwater Village Pedestrian AccidentChild, 3, Injured in Atwater Village Pedestrian Accident

ATWATER VILLAGE, Los Angeles (October 12, 2017) – On March 28, Tuesday, Caroline Maurer was struck by a vehicle at an unnamed intersection in Atwater Village, according to KTLA 5.

Primary reports mentioned Maurer was pushing a 2-year-old boy in a stroller when the accident occurred.

Maurer, the involved young boy’s nanny, narrated that were no cars at the intersection when they started crossing. Then, one car approached and made a left-hand turn toward her and the boy. As per the article, Maurer pushed the stroller to save the boy and ended up being the one struck by the car.

Investigators believe the involved motorist did not stop or slow down at a 4-way stop sign, leading to the collision. The impact resulted in the nanny suffering in serious injuries to her hands, wrists, and arms. Maurer was hospitalized for more than two weeks before spending another two months in rehabilitation.

Officials said the victim has undergone three surgeries since late March, and was only allowed to start physical therapy three months after because of weakness in her hands, wrists and arms. Furthermore, she has also been suffering from dizziness that may also be related to the crash.

Meanwhile, the child was reportedly not directly hit by the car and only suffered minor scrapes in the crash.

No immediate information was disclosed on the involved motorist. It was not clear if the driver was identified, or if charges were made.

The young boy’s parents, Courtney Davis and Bill Wolkoff, started a fundraising page to help Ms. Caroline Maurer.

Based on this news report, it remained unclear if the involved driver will be held liable for causing the accident that led to Ms. Caroline Maurer and an innocent child injured. California has several right of way laws that apply to the pedestrians. These laws include the obligation of the drivers to yield the right of way to pedestrians crossing in a marked crosswalk, or unmarked crosswalks at intersections, to not overtake and pass a stopped vehicle that let pedestrians cross at a marked or unmarked crosswalk, and to exercise due care and lessen the speed of their cars while approaching a pedestrian within any marked or unmarked crosswalk.

Every personal injury case is unique and many factors are used to value each case. The losses from your claim include the amount of the medical bills, lost wages, pain, and suffering, etc. The most important factor is your life change resulting from the injury. Typically, the larger the injury and life change, the larger the settlement. We discuss your personal injury claim’s worth during your free consultation.

The first thing you should do is contact an attorney. Without the representation of a lawyer, insurance companies might make contact with you directly, and since they are trained to protect their best interests, this could mean a loss of rights on your behalf, especially if you unknowingly sign something that they didn't completely explain to you.

The length of a personal injury case depends on many factors including the evaluation and treatment of the injury. The bigger the injury, the longer it takes to treat.

Many victims believe if you don't have health insurance you don't have a case - this NOT true. In fact, those with health insurance usually don't use it since there are so many restrictions and steps to overcome to receive authorization for treatment. Johnson Attorneys Group assists you in finding the best doctors to help. Most of them even wait until a settlement for payment. Call for a free consultation 800-208-3538, or complete the form below >
Handling a personal injury claim by yourself is very difficult. You will deal directly with the insurance adjuster who is often trained to obtain the information they are not entitled to use. This information can negatively impact and de-value your case. Once your case is damaged, it is very difficult to repair it and usually costs you thousands of dollars less in a settlement.
