LAKRITZ LAW Obtains A $4 Million Settlement For Bicyclist Who Suffered Traumatic Brain Injury In Truck Crash
Plaintiff, a 54 year old Spanish speaking non-U.S. citizen, was riding his bicycle on a clear day, on the gravel shoulder portion of a rural Michigan roadway. Defendant truck driver veered to the right, off the roadway, and onto the gravel shoulder portion of the roadway, colliding with plaintiff’s bicycle. Plaintiff bicycle rider was knocked to the ground and suffered a traumatic brain injury, resulting in the necessity for multiple surgical interventions. Plaintiff was placed into an inpatient facility and was permanently disabled as a consequence of the subject crash. Deposition testimony of the investigating police officers reflected that defendant had a clear and unobstructed view of the roadway. It also reflected that the roadway, the other traffic, and the weather conditions did not contribute to the crash. Moreover, the officers admitted that there was nothing that plaintiff did that contributed to his injury. Information obtained from his friends and co-workers painted a picture of a kind and gentle man, one of whose singular joys in life was riding his bicycle. Representatives of defendant argued that plaintiff’s lack of U.S. citizenship, his spotty work history and his lack of immediate family members should result in a minimal financial recovery. The matter ultimately settled for 4 Million Dollars prior to Trial. LAKRITZ LAW Firm lawyers were also able to obtain significant first-party no-fault benefits for Plaintiff in this case.
