Leibel Law, North Georgia’s leading personal injury law firm, has negotiated a $292,500 pre-litigation settlement under insurance claim number 266874195002 for a client who suffered severe injuries after his bike was hit by a motor vehicle in Dahlonega, Georgia.
The client, who was touring the North Georgia Mountains on a bike, and the motorist were traveling on a county road in Lumpkin County when the motorist attempted a left turn. The resulting collision sent the 50-year-old male cyclist airborne, shattering his ankle on impact. The client sustained significant injuries requiring a total reconstruction of his ankle.
Prior to the collision, the plaintiff was an active cyclist who biked a hundred miles a week. The incident sidelined him for many months, while he underwent extensive surgery and rehabilitation.
“This is not the first accident that Leibel Law has been involved in and it will not be the last,” said Steven Leibel, Attorney and Founder of Leibel Law, “With the increased popularity of cycling, especially in the north Georgia region, drivers and cyclists alike must be more vigilant to keep these tragedies for occurring."
