Large Multi-Million Dollar Recovery for Pedestrian Death Caused by Failure to Have Traffic Control Device
A young scientist from Pittsburgh was killed as she crossed the street with the right-of-way at a dangerous intersection near Frick Park. The intersection had been the scene of many prior accidents of which the City of Pittsburgh was aware. A large multi-million dollar jury verdict was obtained against the City for failure to have proper traffic control devices at the intersection. Attorney Gismondi and the family of the deceased woman donated part of the award to pay for a pedestrian safety flasher to be installed at the intersection so that it would be safer for the children and adults who used the nearby playground.
