When a 70-year-old widow and business owner suffered serious financial losses when three automobiles crashed into her building and caused severe structural damage, she turned to William Davis, of of the trial-lawyer firm of McMonagle, Perri, McHugh & Mischak, for help.
He secured a $250,000 award for the woman, who had taken over business after her husband’s passing. The award allowed her to recover all of her losses and continue a successful and profitable neighborhood business.
The accident occurred in the Mount Airy section of Philadelphia, when two vehicles, driving recklessly, collided, hit a third car and jumped the curb, and struck the the woman’s building, causing significant damage. The accident destroyed the building that housed the business, as well as a commercial rental property and two residential rental properties.
The case involved complex damage calculations, including expert structural engineers, property appraisals, financial projections and business valuations. The team, led by William Davis, won the $250,000 award, which allowed the business owner to tear down and rebuild the property and re-open businesses, while also being compensated for all lost income.
