July 29-2021 12:00 PM Pacific Daylight Time

OCEANSIDE, California, July 29-2021--

A policy limits six-figure settlement was reached for an injured Ironman triathlete by his bicycle injury trial lawyer Richard L. Duquette of Oceanside, California.

On 5/8/2021, the triathlete was returning home from a training ride, when a car made an abrupt “right hook” turn in front of him near a freeway on ramp, causing the crash. The bicyclist’s right arm was fractured by the crash. Surgery was required.

The case was promptly settled within 47 days of hiring Mr. Duquette, who was also able to negotiate a $5,000 reduction in his medical bills and obtain the full value of his carbon bike and wheels. Regarding the prompt results, the triathlete reports, “I couldn’t be more happy.”

“Unfortunately, many motorists irresponsibly hit and maim bicyclists. Fortunately, we were able to promptly obtain justice for this dedicated Ironman triathlete without protracted litigation,” said Mr. Duquette of the Law Firm of Richard L. Duquette. The defendant was insured by Progressive Insurance Company.
