Oestreicher helps motorist win suit against state for faulty stoplight

A Jefferson Parish, La., jury agreed with a woman who claimed a malfunctioning signal light led to her 2001 traffic accident.

Debra A. Warden, of Westwego, won a $1.5 million judgment against the state of Louisiana. New Orleans lawyer David W. Oestreicher, II represented Warden in the case.

She sought compensation for pain and suffering, lost wages and medical expenses. According to court documents, the jury found the state 100 percent at fault in the case.

Warden was in a two-car crash at an intersection when she collided with another vehicle traveling north.

Oestreicher, says the accident occurred because the traffic signal at the intersection was green for both drivers.
