Confidential settlement between cyclist and corporate entity
Court: San Francisco
Date: December 2014
Large settlement despite disputed liability, the cyclist’s inability to recall the collision due to a concussion, and disputed damages. The accident occurred as a truck driver turned left at an intersection into the path of an oncoming cyclist and caused the cyclist to collide with the side of the truck. Both parties maintained that the other had run a red light. The truck driver initially fled the scene, only returning after-the-fact. The cyclist had numerous facial fractures and suffered a mild traumatic brain injury as a result.
