Bike Accident with a Parked Car
July 3rd, 2019
Jack was riding his bike down Commonwealth Avenue, when a person who was parked on the side of the road opened her car door in his lane of travel. Due to the traffic that was on the street, Jack was unable to move around the opened door and he collided with the door of the car and broke his arm. Since the accident involved a parked car, we were able to make a claim against the car insurance policy. After finally accepting responsibility, the car insurance company did not want to pay the full value of his injuries and instead they claimed that he was partially responsible for the accident. We filed for arbitration and were able to obtain the maximum amount of the car insurance policy.
