The Wininger Law Firm recently made the City of Birmingham pay dearly for injuring one of our long-time friends. Our client was walking on a sidewalk in downtown Birmingham when she attempted to cross the street at the corner of an intersection upon seeing a “WALK” signal. A city employee operating a motorized vacuum sweeper made an abrupt right turn, running over our client. After being hit, she was unable to stand or walk and was taken to a local hospital emergency room for treatment. Our firm was able to show that the City employee had a previous psychoactive drug conviction and was also likely not properly trained in the safety aspects of operating the machine he was operating. Luckily the injuries suffered by our client were not life-threatening and after several months she finally regained the ability to continue most of the normal activities of her life.
