Bicycle Accident

Our client was riding his bicycle in Washington, DC when a Secret Service officer made a U-turn, struck him, and knocked him off his bicycle. He sustained significant injuries which necessitated multiple surgeries, including a rotator cuff tear, a wrist ligament injury, an ankle fracture, and a rib fracture. The federal government initially denied responsibility for the accident, which meant that we filed suit in the federal court in the District of Columbia in order to obtain a recovery for our client. After extensive litigation, we were able to provide a convincing argument that the Secret Service officer was at fault and that our client was seriously injured. We were able to settle the case for $235,000.00 by means of private mediation.
