Attorney, George Patterson has handled claims on behalf of customers who were injured when a car crashed into a store. One incident occurred in Gaithersburg, Maryland in Montgomery County. The car accident occurred when a driver pulled into a parking space in front of a store in a strip mall and accidentally hit the accelerator instead of the brake. The car jumped a short sidewalk and crashed into the building. The car did not come to a stop until it was entirely inside the store. The car crashed into the business, drove through a waiting area and injured several customers and employees of the store. Lawyer, George Patterson represented several occupants of the store that were unexpectedly hit by the car and sent into other customers. Cases where a driver mistakenly hits the accelerator instead of the brake often result in multiple people sustaining severe injuries. In such cases it is important to have an experienced car accident, premises liability and personal injury lawyer to pursue all available avenues of recovery. George Patterson successfully resolved the case without having to file suit. George Patterson also represented a customer of a business that was on a busy roadway. A car crash occurred in the roadway sending one of the cars into the business, injuring the customer. Mr. Patterson successfully pursued this case in the Circuit Court for Prince George’s County and obtained a favorable verdict for the customer.
