Collision with Car Traveling in a Bike Lane
Our Client was driving along in downtown Orlando, when another driver attempted to pass on our Client’s right side. The driver smacked into the side of our client’s vehicle, causing damage to our Client and his vehicle. When our Client received the police report, he was shocked to see that the police declared him at fault for the accident. The police report stated that the bicycle lane was just another lane on the road, and thus the other driver was not wrong to pass on the right. That’s when our Client called us.
Victory at Traffic Court
Ultimately, the issue ended up in traffic court, where our client was able to show that the other lane was actually a bicycle lane, not a lane for cars to drive in. Once we could show that the lane was a bicycle lane and the other driver should not have been driving in the bicycle lane, our Client was vindicated and no longer at fault.
Policy Limits Settlement for Our Client
Once our client was vindicated at traffic court, the other driver no longer had an argument. That driver should not have been driving in the bicycle lane and was clearly at fault. After some back and forth with the insurance company, they folded and tendered policy limits to our client. This was another victory for a person who truly deserved it.
