Security Guard Injured by Thief’s Car

As a security guard for a retail store located in a mall, the client followed a young man who had stolen a leather jacket into the parking lot. The thief’s car nearly ran over the client, causing the client to jump out of the way, injuring the client’s knee. There was no actual contact between the car and the client. The automobile insurance carrier denied coverage to the thief claiming an intentional act exclusion. Rosen Louik & Perry, Pennsylvania Worker’s Compensation Lawyers, were able to prove that the thief’s acts with the vehicle were not intentionally directed toward injuring the client. Such an intentional act would have nullified insurance coverage for the client’s injuries. Once intentional acts were excluded, the insurance from the automobile company was required to cover the accident. The case settled for $475,000.00.
