Spinal Surgeries from Car Collision

Our attorneys were proud to represent a 60-year old man who was hit in a collision that required multiple spinal surgeries. Defense unsuccessfully argued that the conditions were pre-existing, they contested his lost wages claim, and originally only offered 10% payment on the medical treatment. Despite those efforts, the team at Bay Area Bicycle Law was able to negotiate a settlement – on the eve of trial – for $995,000.00.

Spinal Surgeries from Car Collision

Spinal Surgeries from Car Collision 2019

Our attorneys were proud to represent a 60-year old man who was hit in a collision that required multiple spinal surgeries. The client, a health care provider to the elderly and infirm, as well as a frequent volunteer, suffered a dramatic decrease to the quality of his professional and private life due to the immense amounts of back pain that he incurred, and that will unfortunately affect him the rest of his life. This pain would eventually require multiple spinal surgeries to combat, and due to his lack of healthcare, meant that he risked it all coming out-of-pocket. Defense unsuccessfully argued that the conditions were pre-existing, they contested his lost wages claim, and originally only offered 10% payment on the medical treatment. Despite those efforts, the team at Bay Area Bicycle Law was able to negotiate a settlement – on the eve of trial – for $995,000.00.

Sideswipe by Impaired Driver

Sideswipe by Impaired Driver 2017

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.

$1,000,000.00 FOR INJURED CYCLIST

JUDGEMENT FOR INJURED CYCLIST Sacramento County 2017

Obtained judgment in excess of $1,000,000.00 on behalf of a cyclist who sustained a mild traumatic brain injury from colliding with a truck that was making an unsafe left turn. The insurance company blamed the crash on the cyclist, claiming that he was going too fast, and that the driver had done nothing wrong, did not fail to yield to the cyclist and had a clear path prior to turning. The insurance company also contested the cyclist’s brain injury. Nevertheless, the attorneys at Bay Area Bicycle Law were able to demonstrate that the driver was at fault, not the cyclist, and that the cyclist’s injuries were not only real but also serious.

$105,000 Prieto v. Yellow Cab

Prieto v. Yellow Cab San Francisco County Superior Court February 2015

This lawsuit was filed against a local cab company after the corporate defendant continuously denied any responsibility throughout settlement negotiations for an accident caused by their negligent driver. The Plaintiff was a young woman returning home from work at 10:30pm when a cab driver attempted an illegal u-turn, striking her in the process. Ms. Prieto suffered a fractured knee and concussion. The cab company alleged up until trial that Ms. Prieto was 100% responsible for her injuries for failing to wear a helmet or use a bike light. On the eve of trial, Defendants finally offered the Plaintiff $35,000 to settle the case -- an amount insufficient to even cover her economic damages. At trial, the jury found Defendants 80% at fault and awarded $105,000.00 in damages.
