A 23 year old delivery man from Ecuador was riding an electric bicycle when he was struck by a car at an intersection in Queens, NY. Although the driver had a Stop Sign, he claimed that he could not see the bicyclist because he was wearing dark clothing at night and the scooter did not have proper lights and reflectors.
The bicyclist suffered a fractured femur, which required surgery. Jacob Oresky & Associates, represented the young man in his lawsuit against the driver. Once a jury had been selected and a trial was about to begin, the Defendant agreed to pay $450,000 to settle the bicyclist’s case.
