Cyclist Who Suffers Traumatic Brain Injury After Being Struck By Work Vehicle To Receive $5 Million
Defendant and Insurer AIG accepted a pending $5 million policy limits demand two days before trial on a matter where a work vehicle for a local underground pipe manufacturer struck a 60-year-old professional who became a client of Dreyer Babich Buccola Wood Campora. The defendant company denied liability up until shortly before trial and after the attorneys representing the client, Roger A. Dreyer and Chris Wood, conducted a visibility study which proved liability against the defendant. The cyclist sustained a mild brain injury that allegedly impacted his cognitive functioning which the firm proved had essentially eliminated the client's ability to continue in his profession. The case also involved a claim that the impact had aggravated a prior spinal condition which the defendant's insurer had hired three different medical experts to contest. This case showed the importance of the manner in which this firm gets prepared to try its cases for its clients and successfully represents them at trial. Dreyer and Wood litigated this matter for their client for over two years. The defendant's insurer offered $500,000 just six weeks before trial, then increased their offer to $3 million while the firm remained resolute on the demand for the limits or it would go to trial.
