Bicycle Accident Victim Gets Compensation From Injuries
Bicycling is a great mode of transportation. It is also a dangerous one. Cyclists are often times criticized for not obeying traffic laws when in fact, it’s the motor vehicle drivers who disregard traffic laws when they encounter cyclists. As a result, serious injuries result when cyclists have an accident with the a moving vehicle.
Our client was obeying all traffic laws when a driver decided to make a left turn into a parking lot, not noticing him crossing in front of the entrance. Not wanted to be hit by the car, our client hit the brakes on his bike, resulting in him flying over his handlebars and landing on the hard pavement. Injuuries to his right shoulder, ribs, right foot,, and left wrist were sustained. He went to the hospital for treatment.
He turned to McShane & Brady to be his “champion.” We went to work for the compensation commensurate with the injuries he sustained. We fought the defendant’s insurance company. Our client was impressed with the time and effort McShane & Brady put forth on his behalf. The hard work resulted with our client receiving a settlement that was more an satisfactory to him.
