Our clients were riding their bikes on a road in California when an elderly lady hit both of them and dragged the wife approximately 100 yards from the point of impact. This case was worked up as if it was going to trial from the get-go. We successfully settled this case within four months of retaining the clients.

Negligent event promoter
Our client was riding in an organized event. The event promoter failed to obtain the proper permits and created an unsafe situation where our client crossed bars with a cyclist that was coming from the opposite direction. This was a very tough case as there is a defense called an assumption of the risk, which we all take when we ride. The original offer was $0. After 2 years in litigation, we recovered $1.4 million.
