Mitch Portnoi Settles Bicycle Accident Case for $450,000

March 26, 2019

Mitch Portnoi recently settled a case on behalf of a bicyclist who was hit by a motor vehicle and suffered serious injuries. The bicyclist, who was also a competitive triathlete, sustained a fractured hip which necessitated surgery (including the insertion of a rod in in his femur) and other injuries. The injuries healed  reasonably well (with some residual issues) and Mitch’s client did return to competitive triathlons and running.  Liability for the accident was also hotly contested by defense counsel.  Notwithstanding these circumstances, Mitch thoroughly prepared and advanced the case to such an extent that he was able to negotiate a $450,000 settlement on behalf of his client.
