Bachus & Schanker, LLC Client Awarded $1.74 Million for Injuries Suffered in Collision Between Car and Bicycle
Christy was riding her bicycle on the far right side of the far right lane on a residential parkway. A collision occurred when Mr. F., who was driving at an excessive rate of speed in the left hand lane, attempted an illegal lane change before determining whether the right hand lane was clear of traffic. Mr. F. over-steered his speeding automobile into the right hand lane occupied by Christy, where he struck the rear end of Christy's bicycle. Christy suffered catastrophic injuries and incurred more than $370,000 in medical expenses.
Bachus & Schanker, LLC filed a lawsuit on behalf of Christy against Mr. F. and V.W. Credit, the owner of Mr. F's car. Bachus & Schanker, LLC hired economists and life care planners to determine the future medical needs and life care expenses for Christy into the future. Christy ultimately received $1.74 million from the defendants to compensate her for her injuries as a result of this catastrophic accident.
