Settlement: Case resolved in favor of Client in the 6 figures

This was a case where an elderly experienced bike rider was struck by a vehicle that was backing out of a driveway. The defense claimed that the accident was entirely the fault of the bike rider, as did a witness. As a result of the accident, the client received a Traumatic Brain Injury (TBI), a collapsed lung, vision, and hearing injuries. The defendant refused to offer the medical bills. The case went to binding arbitration, and the arbitrator found in favor of the client, and awarded well into the 6 figures.
