PA Icy Roads Cause Paralyzing Accident

This 30-year old client was involved in a minor automobile accident but sustained a paralyzing injury. The state of Pennsylvania was sued for knowingly allowing ice to accumulate on the roadway, thereby causing the motor vehicle accident. In these situations, the state enjoys limited sovereign immunity and is only responsible for up to a $250,000.00 payment. After discovery proved that the state knew, or should have known of the roadway drainage problem, the case settled for $225,000.00.
