March of 2015: $6,000,000.00 result for client injured by vehicle while riding bicycle;
Our client suffered a traumatic brain injury when he was hit by an inattentive driver while he was riding his bicycle. The investigating police officer’s report stated that he could not determine if the accident occurred within the designated bike lane or outside the bike lane in the vehicle’s lane of traffic and therefore did not assign fault to either party. We set out through our accident reconstruction expert and careful examination of the physical evidence to establish that the impact occurred in the bike lane which the defense was forced to accept. We then retained the best experts to evaluate and make recommendations for future care for our client. The extent of our client’s damages was established through the use of videos, animations of brain injuries and other demonstrative aides that illustrated the drastic change in our client’s day to day life as a result if his injuries, limitations and needs. Our efforts allowed our client and perhaps more importantly, his family, to move on to their new “normal” without financial pressures.
