Confidential settlement between cyclist and local winery
Court: Napa County
Date: October 2014
Large settlement despite paid medical expenses of less than $7,000.00 after an elderly man was struck by a negligent grape truck driver while crossing a narrow bridge in Napa County. Cyclist suffered numerous painful rib and hip fractures that left him largely bed-ridden for weeks. Due to the driver’s impatience, the cyclist was placed in substantial peril, bouncing back and forth between the large truck’s tires and the adjacent guardrail. We were able to settle this dispute without filing a lawsuit, saving our client both the hassle and costs of litigation.
