Girl on Roller Blades Not Responsible for Bicycle Accident

Comments Off

A fertility doctor sued a young girl the he blamed for causing a bicycle accident. The girl was on roller blades and the doctor was on the bicycle.

The jury found that the girl was not responsible and was probably startled when the doctor rode on his bicycle up behind her, rang his bell and shouted “watch out.” The girl then moved to her left and right in front of the doctor.

He broke his collarbone and practice lost business while he was recovering. He was sueing for pain and suffering and the money his practice lost. The jury only took 15 minutes to decide on the verdict.
