Sideswipe by Impaired Driver
Our client, an older woman who suffered a severe head injury and an extended hospital stay, came to us after being turned by multiple law firms because of an adverse TCR. The odds were stacked against her, multiple eyewitnesses said they thought the client just fell of their bike, her head injury impeded her ability to remember what happened, the police assumed that the collision was her fault, and the driver’s insurance completely denied liability. The attorneys at Bay Area Bicycle did a thorough investigation and uncovered evidence that suggested that the driver was impaired and did sideswipe our client. From a complete denial of liability, the team at Bay Area Bicycle Law successfully negotiated for the full policy limits of $250,000.
