Zoe Rosenthal, 53, was walking in a crosswalk at an intersection. Charles Davignon turned left in his vehicle at the intersection and hit Rosenthal, knocking her to the ground. Sadly, she died of her injuries two days later. She was survived by her two adult daughters and a granddaughter.
Her daughters, on behalf of her estate, sued Davignon, alleging he negligently operated his motor vehicle and chose not to yield to a pedestrian in a crosswalk.
The lawsuit also claimed that Davignon Real Estate Agency and Davignon Property LLC were vicariously liable for Davignon’s negligence because he was in the course of his employment at the time of this incident.
