Student Hit by Car and Propelled 60 Feet Into Air
3D Animations Emphasize Key Details and Help Attain a $7 Million Settlement

DK Global worked alongside attorney Rickey Wallace of Canelo Wallace Padron & Mackie PC, on creating compelling visuals that would obtain justice for a 13-year-old boy. The Plaintiff was struck by a vehicle while crossing a street within a crosswalk while on his way to school during pre-dawn hours. The pedestrian flashing signs failed to function due to a defective solar panel. After being hit by the car, he was propelled 60 feet in the air before landing on the sidewalk. The boy sustained numerous injuries including right hemiparesis, multiple internal and external lacerations, anterior rib fractures, and right upper lobe pulmonary contusion intracranial hypertension, leaving the young boy with life-altering damages. The extent of the brain injury called for multiple procedures including a craniotomy, which involved drilling into his skull with the temporary removal of a portion of his skull.

Attorney Wallace went above and beyond for his client, requesting the full visual workup which included colorized brain scans, and illustrated slices demonstrating where the hemorrhaging occurred in his brain due to impact. A medical animation of the necessary invasive craniectomy the Plaintiff underwent to treat the intracranial hypertension was also created. Lastly, a reconstructive animation depicted crucial details such as the defective solar crosswalk lights, a viewpoint from the negligent driver’s perspective, and other pertinent factors that aided in explaining the circumstances of the case.

With the aid of the animations, attorney Rickey was able to settle the case favorably for the policy limits of those responsible for the defective solar panel. Plus, with the negligent driver's policy, he was able to attain a total of $7,175,000 for his deserving client. Attorney Rickey Wallace is a partner of California based Canelo, Wallace Padron & Mackie PC. With over 31 years of experience, he has been recognized as a Martindale-Hubbell AV rated attorney and “Super Lawyer.”
