Bicyclist’s Severe Brain Injury Results from Property Negligence

By Law Offices of Gerald Marcus  Feb. 4, 2011 1:00p

Following is a prime example of how someone's property negligence can result in a serious injury for a bicyclist. Julie Ferris was struck by a trolley five months ago while riding her bicycle on the Azusa Pacific University Campus in Southern California. She was riding on the main road that links both the West and East campuses, Foothill Boulevard, when the accident occurred and she suffered severe brain injury. The block she was riding on (800 Block) had been in dangerous condition for awhile and forced students to deal with congested traffic and parked cars while riding with the flow of traffic. Apparently, Julie had to move to the opposite side of the road facing oncoming traffic and she was struck by the trolley.

Negligence Invites Personal Injury Lawsuits

In the above scenario, negligence of property can be a quick route to people getting injured resulting in personal injury lawsuits. When people act irresponsibly, they should be held accountable as peoples' lives are damaged and destroyed. If you have been involved in a bicycle accident in the Pasadena or surrounding area, you should contact a Pasadena personal injury attorney as soon as possible.
