Bicycle Case Settlement

Our client, a young lady riding a bicycle in a bike lane in Silver Lake, was knocked off of her bike when a driver opened her car door into the bicyclist. The collision threw the bicyclist onto the pavement in the street. She fell hard onto her left elbow. The bicyclist went to the hospital. X-rays revealed a displaced fracture of the olecranon (elbow). Just prior to trial, the defense doubled the offer they made at the mediation and the bicyclist settled her case.
