SETTLEMENT: Bicycle rider struck by large truck
In December 2011, 63-year-old Stewart Lee Krienke was riding his bicycle down Figueroa St. in Carson, CA when a large tractor-trailer suddenly made a left turn and collided with him. Mr. Krienke sustained a major traumatic brain injury.
Shortly thereafter, Mr. Krienke’s sister and conservator hired us to pursue a personal injury case against the truck driver and his employer, a medium-sized trucking company. Although the wheels of justice often spin slowly in catastrophic injury cases such as this, and quick settlements are usually bad settlements, our goal was to obtain both a quick and a good recovery for Mr. Krienke, so that he could benefit from the funds before it was too late to do him any good.
