Settlement - Wrongful Death/Product Design Defect
James F. Best and Mathew K. HargraveNovember 2012
BVH obtains favorable settlement in favor of a design engineering firm that designed bicycle racks used by transit authorities throughout the country in a case where Plaintiff died after being run over by a transit bus while attempting to remove her bicycle from the front-mounted bicycle rack. Discovery proved that the design was not defective in any way and complied with the transit authority's specifications. As a result, and while the design firm's Motion for Summary Judgment was pending, Plaintiff settled with it for less than 1% of the total settlement.
