Bus company settles lawsuit for $1.25 million after woman is struck by a bus

Earlier this month, Levin & Perconti settled a lawsuit for $1.25 million when a school bus driver ran over a 50 year old woman crossing the street in a cross walk at Argyle and Kenmore in Chicago. The bus driver from Alltown Bus Service, Inc. pled guilty in traffic court to failure to exercise due care and striking a pedestrian.

As the woman began crossing the street, in the crosswalk, the bus knocked her down and rolled over her. She suffered multiple pelvic fractures, rib fractures and spine fractures and will need a hip replacement due to arthritis in one of the hip fractures.
