In July 2009, competitive cyclists Carol and her husband were riding on a quiet side street in Fort Collins, Colorado. An approaching van turned into them and struck Carol. Carol was thrown to the ground, breaking her collarbone and ankle, and suffering multiple contusions and bruises. The impact also destroyed Carol's helmet and bike. An ambulance sped her to a nearby emergency room where doctors ordered five CT scans to determine whether she had a closed head injury or neck fracture.
Carol soon came to James R Moriarty PC for help. We quickly reached a settlement with the driver’s insurance company. Carol's medical bills, bike and accessories were paid for, plus she was compensated for pain and suffering. We helped her obtain just compensation, without having to file suit or engage in a drawn-out legal battle. Carol greatly appreciated our experience in navigating the convoluted and discouraging world of insurance companies. She is now back in the saddle, training with her husband and competing with her cycling team.
