Bicycle Accident Victim Recovers From Multiple Insurance Companies
Plaintiffs vs. Multiple Insurance Companies
Case Summary: Bike Accident
Jeanmarie Whalen, a Shareholder at Domnick Cunningham & Yaffa, obtained a $1 million pre-trial settlement on behalf of a client who suffered severe and permanent injuries when he was struck by a driver of a motor vehicle while riding his bike in Lake Worth, Florida. The collision took place on June 10, 2017 when the driver failed to stop at a posted stop sign, violently colliding with another vehicle, which then traveled onto the sidewalk striking the plaintiff. Witness statements, along with video surveillance footage of the intersection, proved clear liability against the driver.
As a result of the collision our client suffered open wounds and fractures to his upper and lower extremities, which necessitated surgery as well as physical and rehabilitative therapy. These injuries will require future medical care and treatment. Due to the serious nature of our client’s injuries, Ms. Whalen filed a lawsuit in Palm Beach County circuit court. Even though multiple individuals were injured in the collision, and insurance coverage was limited to $1.1 million, Ms. Whalen successfully obtained a $1 million settlement on behalf of our client prior to trial.
Ms. Whalen has a record of obtaining justice for victims of catastrophic injury. She is an experienced civil trial lawyer and has obtained over 30 multi-million-dollar recoveries for her clients. Ms. Whalen has achieved an AV rating from Martindale-Hubbell, and been recognized by The Best Lawyers in America in the field of personal injury, Florida “Super Lawyers” and as a “Top Lawyer” by the South Florida Legal Guide multiple times.
