Dog Chases Cyclist – Causing him to Fall — Fractured Pelvis
Our client was an incredibly active and fit gentleman in his seventies. Following a long ride – more than 20 miles – our client was near his home when a neighbor’s dog got loose. The dog chased our client’s bike and hit the front tire. Our client fell and suffered a fractured pelvis. Fortunately, the dog owner had homeowner’s insurance that covered injuries due to domestic animals. A confidential, six-figure settlement was reached before suit was filed.
