Persistence Defeats Efforts to Deny Award in Fatality

Roosevelt Boulevard, which runs up through Northeast Philadelphia, is one of the most dangerous roads in America – for motorists and pedestrians. TV news crews are regularly dispatched to the boulevard to film accident scenes.

Crossing the broad roadway on foot is especially dangerous. McMonagle, Perri, McHugh & Mischak represented the family of one man who, tragically, didn’t make it. The family’s pain was made worse when the insurance companies involved claimed that the driver was not responsible because the victim, a grandfather, had not been trying to cross at a crosswalk.

McMonagle Perri attorneys dug in. They conducted an extensive investigation, and their dogged persistence won the maximum possible award for the man’s widow and her family. After this victory, the firm assisted the family in creating an estate.
