Bicyclist Found Responsible in Injury Claim

Ron Zurek (Senior Partner/Los Angeles) defended a driver against a serious injury claim brought by a lawyer bicyclist. The bicyclist claimed that the car driver client was negligent for cutting him off by making a sudden right turn just as he was going past the car, causing a collision that threw him off his bike and over the car altogether. The defense was that the bicyclist was solely responsible for unsafely trying to pass on the right. The jury agreed, no liability was found and the bicyclist now owes a significant amount of monetary costs to the defendant.
