Client Hit By Felon Operating Stolen Vehicle

Ben J. Whitman and Mark W. Clark obtained a settlement on behalf of a North Palm Beach client who was stopped at red light when a Maserati sedan – operated by a felon who stole the vehicle from a country club parking lot and pursued at high speeds by the Palm Beach Gardens Police Department – violently impacted his vehicle. Although the owner of the vehicle did not give the driver permission to operate the Maserati and the police officers were in violation of internal policies regarding high-speed chases, Whitman and Clark were able to establish that the owner of the vehicle was liable for the damages.
