Man Paralyzed in Bicycle Accident Gets $20M Settlement0
Congratulations to Tom Schultz and Deborah Chang attorneys at Panish Shea & Boyle LLP and Richard L. Duquette of the Law Firm of Richard L. Duquette for obtaining a $20 million settlement for a bicyclist who became a quadriplegic and his wife.
The plaintiff was riding his bicycle when he fell into a narrow trench that that was cut across the bicycle lane. Although construction workers knew they created a dangerous trap for bicyclists, they failed to place proper warnings or post someone to warn bicyclists. The trench was not visible to bicyclists in the morning due to the angle of the sun.
The plaintiff Sheng “Sam” Du, was a 52-year-old Software Architectural Manager at Verizon. The bicycle accident occurred in the city of San Diego, California.
