Client was a motorcyclist who was cut off and struck by a car merging onto the freeway. Thrown to the ground, client suffered a concussion and soft tissue injuries. The matter was resolved prior to the commencement of litigation.
Natasha White, a University of Berkeley graduate and avid bicycle rider, sustained injuries to her leg and shoulder when a vehicle hit her while trying to exit out of a shopping center in Danville. Ms. White was riding her bicycle on the sidewalk and against traffic at the time she was hit. As a result, the police blamed her for the collision. Heinrich Law was able to prove that the City of Danville did not have an ordinance that stated bicycle riders may not ride on the sidewalk; and further proved that the sidewalk was the only safe place for Ms. White to be riding in and around the location of the incident. After two years of legal wrangling over who was to blame for the accident, Heinrich Law was able to settle the case for $100,000.
