AgnewBrusavich Obtains Bicycle Accident Settlement: Dangerous Road Repaired

Disrupted asphalt caused by tree roots and camouflaged by the trees’ shade caused a bicyclist to crash on Via Zumaya in Palos Verdes Estates, California, causing the cyclist to suffer injuries that included a fractured pelvis. Partner Gerald Agnew claimed that the roadway presented a dangerous condition to cyclists.

Though the city defended the claim, blaming the cyclist’s speed and bicycle handling for the accident, Mr. Agnew was successful in mediating with the government entity. AgnewBrusavich obtained a settlement of $400,000 for the cyclist’s injuries. The road has since been repaired.

Mr. Agnew attributes this success to the firm’s early involvement in the case, which enabled Mr. Agnew to obtain a complete reconstruction of the accident and detailing the roadway, and the conditions which caused the accident.



    The entire AgnewBrusavich team took over everything and were a tremendous help. The insurance company was dealt with, the settlement was received, and I was very pleased with the results. I would not hesitate to recommend AgnewBrusavich to anyone.

    The team at Agnew Brusavich cannot come more highly recommended. If you should have some sort of personal injury case, particularly if you are a cyclist, I cannot think of a better team to handle a personal injury case.

    Agnew and Brusavich helped me so much after an injury from a car accident. I was shaken up from the experience but they made me feel so comfortable and truly showed they cared about my case.

    I was referred to Agnew Brusavich, and after meeting with Gerry I felt much better. He and his team handled all the communication between the insurance companies and opposing attorneys and kept me up-to-date throughout the process.
