A Prescott woman was hit in a cross-walk, fracturing her left hip, elbow, and wrist, only to be accused of stepping into the cross-walk too late and exaggerating her injuries. She chose the Jensen Phelan Law Firm, P.C. to help her find recovery in spite of formidable legal opposition requiring a jury trial.
Sally Hargrove, then 74 years old, was crossing the street at Whipple and Division to go to the Prescott YMCA when she was struck by an SUV. The SUV, driven by Mrs. Orlando, collided into Mrs. Hargrove while making a left turn. Due to the accident, Mrs. Hargrove required several surgeries, as well as a hip replacement. Sally Hargrove had to hold Mrs. Orlando responsible for her negligence and chose the Jensen Phelan Law Firm, P.C. to represent her.
Mrs. Hargrove’s case had to go to trial, so Jensen Phelan Law Firm, P.C. began working diligently to establish the collision facts and medical proofs. The opposing attorney sought to undermine the claim with evidence of a pre-existing arthritic hip condition that Mrs. Hargrove had. However, Chris Jensen proved Mrs. Hargrove is a mobile, healthy (for her age) senior, who was crippled and nearly crushed to death by a careless driver.
After a 5-day jury trial and a 2-hour deliberation, the jury sided with Mrs. Hargrove and awarded her a $650,000 recovery. Click here to view the Daily Courier article.
