An unidentified 20-year-old bicyclist suffered critical injuries in a Riverside bicycle accident that occurred on August 23, 2011, around 7 p.m. at Van Buren Boulevard and Canyon Ridge Drive Road near the California Citrus State Historic Park in the Arlington Heights neighborhood.

According to the Police Officials, the bicyclist was traveling south on Van Buren in the northbound bicycle lane when this crash occurred. The biker attempted to turn onto westbound Canyon Ridge, which took him across traffic lanes and into the path of a northbound GMC.

The injured bicyclist was immediately transported to Riverside Community Hospital to receive medical treatment for the critical injuries suffered.

The bike accident is still under investigation to determine who was at fault and who had the right-of-way. In this scenario, the injured bicyclist should immediately seek counsel from an experienced Riverside County bicycle accident lawyer who would educate him about his legal rights and options and help him obtain timely compensation to cover treatment, medical expenses, hospital costs, and other accident-related damages.

Our personal injury law office sincerely hopes that the injuries suffered by the bicyclist heal soon.

Judge to Review Verdict in San Juan Capistrano Bicycle Accident

This Friday, a judge will review a $8.3 million verdict against the City of San Juan Capistrano awarded to a 14-year-old boy, Trenten Miller, who lost his leg during a bicycle accident.

The judgment was to be finalized last month. However, San Juan Capistrano decided to file an objection to the jury findings and overturn the verdict. Superior Court Judge Thierry Colaw set a hearing to hear the City of San Juan Capistrano’s motion this Friday.

In December, an Orange County jury found that the City of San Juan Capistrano liable to Miller because the City created a dangerous condition at an intersection. Miller was the passenger on his friend Scott Agostini’s dirt bike. Overgrown vegetation in the median of the intersection made it difficult for Miller and Agostini to see oncoming traffic as they attempted to cross the intersection of San Juan Creek Road and Paseo Christina.

The jury ruled in favor of the bicyclists, ruling the City of San Juan Capistrano to pay Miller $7.1 million and $1.1 million to Agostini. The verdict was reached three years after the bicycle accident and after Miller unsuccessfully attempted to settle the suit in mediation. Prior to the jury’s verdict, the City of San Juan Capistrano’s only offer was $1 million, which Miller rejected.
