Bicycle Accident

We represented a man who was riding his bicycle on Ohio Drive in Washington, DC when a driver, who was parked on the side of the road, suddenly opened his door. The open door struck our client and knocked him off his bike. As a result of the accident, our client sustained a joint separation to his left shoulder. The driver denied responsibility, claiming that our client was riding too fast and too close to the parked cars. We filed suit and, after extensive discovery, proceeded to trial where we obtained a verdict of $116,700, which exceeded the negligent driver’s liability insurance.
