$70,000 for Cyclist Hit by Car

Jan 10, 2000 | admin

Mike Reiter recently represented a client injured in a bicycle collision caused by another person’s negligent driving. The defendant driver wasn’t paying proper attention while turning and slammed into the rear of our client’s bicycle while he was in a crosswalk. Our client suffered a torn meniscus and permanent injury to his left knee. Nationwide Insurance and Progressive Insurance failed to make offers and denied liability even after suit was filed. In fact, both insurance companies argued that our client contributed to the crash. After the jury trial started, the insurance companies changed their stance and the case settled for $70,000. Our client was overjoyed with Mr. Reiter’s success and, like many other ChasenBoscolo clients, was glad he got Lawyers that Care.
