The Haggard Law Firm’s Douglas McCarron, along with co-counsel Jorge Rodriguez of the Law Office of Jorge A. Rodriguez, has obtained a $1 Million pre-suit settlement in the trucking crash case involving a critically injured pedestrian.

On March 5th, 2020, Masguel Machado, a driver for DHC Trucking, was stopped at the traffic signal located at the intersection of NW 17th Avenue and NW 18th Street in Miami, Florida.  The intersection is located in a highly traversed area that has a number of businesses surrounding it.  Pedestrians crossing the street to and from these businesses is common. 

Shortly before the incident, Haggard Law client Manuel Anduray attempted to cross the street from the west side of NW 17th Avenue.  This intersection had a crosswalk at the intersection, but no “Walk/Do not Walk” signals.

While the 63-year-old was crossing, the traffic signal changed from red to green.  Moments later Machado ran him over causing Anduray catastrophic injuries to his leg, spine, arm, and head. 

Witnesses on the scene indicated that Mr. Machado was paying so little attention that he did not immediately stop after knocking and driving over Mr. Anduray.  Instead, these witnesses were required to yell and scream for Mr. Machado to stop.
