$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.
