Bicycle Injury Case Settlement
A 76 year old retired man was riding his bicycle for his daily exercise. He was on the bicycle path in Barrington, Rhode Island when he was struck in the crosswalk by a van driven by a 68 year old man.
The bicycle rider, who was represented by Karns & Kerrison, lost consciousness at the scene and had no memory of the collision. His injuries were concussion, fractured ribs and shoulder. Suit was filed and the issue was liability.
The bicycle operator had a stop sign while the van operator had three yield signs leading up to the crosswalk that connects the bicycle path on each side of the street. Per the van driver, the bicycle darted in front of him at the last minute and he could not avoid the collision.
As the rider had no memory of the collision with his bike, an accident reconstructionist was hired by Karns & Kerrison to reconstruct the accident. The police officer who investigated the collision was interviewed and Robert T. Karns subsequently settled the case for $58,000.00 on a 50% basis.
