Bicycle – Auto Collision – Right of Way
Bill Martin recently obtained a defense verdict in a jury trial involving a collision between a bicycle and an automobile in a shopping plaza parking lot. The minor plaintiff had the right of way and the defendant had a stop sign. The minor’s leg was run over in the accident and he sustained a fractured femur. He subsequently fractured the same femur on two successive occasions; and his physician related the two subsequent fractures to the original injury. Medicals exceeded $200,000. Defendant only had a $10,000 liability policy, so the defense verdict was well received.
