Pedestrian vs Auto in San Francisco
Ms. Jiali Xie was walking and crossing the street near her home in San Francisco, when defendant Chen, driving a Toyota Tundra, made a left turn and hit her in the intersection at full speed.

Xie was knocked unconscious to the ground and transported by ambulance to the ER. She suffered post-concussion syndrome,bruised muscles and contusions, no fractures. She received chiropractic care and sought psychiatric treatment for stress and insomnia and she was later diagnosed with acute stress disorder.
Xie incurred medical expenses and a significant wage loss. Xie is an assistant vice president at the Bank of America. She lost 7 months of work.
Allstate claimed Ms. Xie was an inattentive pedestrian. Allstate changed their position when Xie produced a surveillance camera outside her home which recorded the accident. Allstate argued the psychiatric care was unnecessary and she could have returned to work much sooner.
The case was settled at $197,000.
