Bicyclist Killed Crossing Intersection With Green Light
This fatal automobile/bicycle collision occurred at an intersection in Plymouth, MN. Our client, an active 88 year old, was riding his bicycle westbound in the crosswalk when he was struck broadside by a vehicle traveling south. The driver apparently did not see our client crossing at the intersection, though our client, in fact, crossed several lanes of traffic before being hit. An eye witness, who was traveling directly behind the at-fault driver indicated he could clearly see our client riding slowly across the intersection and observed that the at-fault driver did not slow down, apply her brakes, or take any evasive action before striking the bicyclist. Our client died as a result of his injuries.
Susan Holden represented his surviving spouse and obtained settlements from both the at-fault driver's insurance company and our client's own underinsured policy for a total settlement of $340,000.
