Attorney Recovers $400k From Yellow Cab

Carlson Law Firm attorney, Todd Kelly, helped the family of a deceased elderly woman that was struck by a Yellow Cab driver while crossing the street. The case recovered a $400,000 settlement.Kelly’s client was legally blind and crossed the street after hearing the audible signal to walk. Two eye-witnesses confirmed that she had a walk signal. The cab driver had a green light, but not a protected arrow when he turned left. The passengers screamed for the cab to stop before striking the old woman and continuing on for several yards.

When the ambulance came, there were no signs of consciousness and was later pronounced dead. The cause of death was found to be blunt force trauma to the head.

Kelly was ready to go to trial but avoided it with a strong case against Yellow Cab. According to Kelly, his client was an accomplished social advocate and worked to assist with low-income housing communities her whole life. She was a grandmother to many and cooked authentic Cuban meals for her family at holidays. Her blindness still allowed her to be independent and walk along the streets of Austin.
