Bicycle Rider Hit By Car Received Policy Limits SettlementBicycle Accident
A Lucas County man was riding his bicycle in the early evening hours of September 2021. As he approached the intersection of Bancroft and Robinwood he witnessed a vehicle begin through the intersection, and another run a stop sign. The car that ran the stop sign struck the other vehicle in the rear end. This collusion caused the vehicle to spin out of control and strike our client who was still on his bicycle. Our client was transported by ambulance to St. Vincent Mercy Medical Center. Our client sustained a broken left arm that required surgery with hardware to repair the damage. He also sustained a right dislocated elbow, and a right PCL tear in his knee. Our attorneys were able to obtain a quick policy limits settlement of $100,000 from the insurance company. The firm was also able to obtain an additional $25,000 from our client’s medical payments coverage; for a gross settlement of $125,000.
