Attorney Goetz represented homeless man in crosswalk hit by Vehicles even though the Police Officers blamed the pedestrian.

Dean Goetz represented a homeless man who crossing a street at night in a crosswalk in Encinitas in September 2015 when he was hit by a Prius. Lawrence was thrown onto the hood of the car and then fell onto the pavement landing on his head. Lawrence hit his head so hard that he was bleeding from his head and one ear. The driver had a fogged up windshield and said he never saw the pedestrian. However, the police officer said Lawrence caused the accident because he was walking on a "Don't Walk" light.

Lawrence was rushed by ambulance to a hospital where he stayed for two months. He was unconscious for a week. He suffered serious brain damage. This person needed help and the Goetz Law Firm was there for him in every way possible.

Liability was obviously a big issue so Attorney Goetz went to work and proved that the driver was at fault. Attorney Goetz pointed out to the insurance company that even if Lawrence entered on a "Don't Walk" light, a pedestrian in an intersection crosswalk has the right of way under California law. He hired the best investigators and an accident reconstructionist. An eye witness was contacted who saw Lawrence begin crossing the street on a "Walk" light. The AR expert looked at all the evidence and concluded that the driver was at fault.

Attorney Goetz was able to settle this case in 2017 for Lawrence for $1,600,000 without even filing a lawsuit. And Lawrence will be taken care of for the rest of his life due to the Special Needs Trust and the Life Annuity that was arranged for him by Goetz.

The elderly man said he almost missed his turn and as a result he turned left at the least second. Mr. V had no time to brake so he hit the car at 30 mph and flew over the car and hit a utility pole.

Accident Investigation

I have taken third party construction accident cases that other attorney have rejected and obtained large settlements for my clients.

I use highly skilled accident reconstruction experts who can uncover the evidence required to prove third party negligence.

Identify Defendants

Seven Figure settlement

Case for a client who was seriously injured in a truck v car accident where the driver of the truck had only $100,000 insurance coverage. I was able to get this seven figure settlement because

I identified an additional defendant.

Motorcycle Riders

I have obtained numerous settlements at trial and in settlement for motorcycle riders who were injured by cars that pulled out in front of them or made left turns in front of them.

In most of these cases liability was contested but after I had my investigators and accident reconstruction experts investigate and prepare reports, the cases were settled for most often the policy limits.

Challenging Cases

I have represented and obtained sizeable settlements for numerous bicycle riders whose cases were rejected by other attorneys.

These bicycle riders had their cases rejected by other attorneys because they did not want to sue a City or a large road building contractor for negligence and damages. It is a lot of work, but I am proud that I have fought for cyclists rights and succeeded.
