Norwalk Cyclist Receives Jury Award of $700,000

The jury originally awarded the plaintiff total damages of $1.4 million dollars, but the verdict was reduced by 50% for the plaintiff’s own comparative negligence. Mills stated that “We represent many cyclists, and unfortunately we often deal with a bias against cyclists in certain situations. My client was keeping a proper lookout, but was catapulted off her bike when her front wheel hit a defect in the asphalt, causing the wheel to turn suddenly to the left and stopping the bike. Between the photos, some of which appeared to minimize the extent of the defect, and the allegations that she was trying to answer her phone when she fell, we had a lot to deal with at trial. She is a wonderful person, and we are ecstatic we prevailed in the end.”
