A driver had just come off a highway exit and was approaching a T intersection controlled by a stop sign. The driver actually came to a stop. He intended to turn left, but inexplicably only looked to his right, at the same time he pressed on the gas pedal to go into the intersection. Bad move. Had he bothered to look to his left, he would have seen the bike rider that he crashed into. The bicyclist suffered a fractured finger needing surgery with pins; a torn tendon in his knee, requiring surgery to fix, and injured his shoulder.

The driver had a limited insurance policy of $100,000, and of that amount, I was able to secure a successful settlement of $95,000.
