Lawsuit Filed On Behalf Of Pedestrian Struck By Uber Driver In Downtown Seattle

Posted on Aug 31, 2020

Davis Law Group, P.S. has filed a civil lawsuit against Uber and its driver on behalf of a female pedestrian who was severely injured while crossing Fourth Avenue at the Columbia Street intersection in Seattle, WA. The woman, N.J., was crossing inside a marked cross walk when the pedestrian signal was green in the woman’s favor.   

On December 4, 2019, at approximately 6:00 PM, a 60 year-old woman, N.J., of Seattle was walking east on Columbia Street and waiting to cross Fourth Avenue. The pedestrian light turned green. N.J. entered the marked cross walk and started crossing the street.  At the same time, an Uber vehicle was heading west on Columbia. The Uber driver was transporting a passenger.

As the Uber driver approached the intersection, he made a right turn on a solid green light. The Uber driver failed to yield to N.J. while she was in the marked cross walk (N.J. was hit in the area depicted by the Red Arrow).
