Description of case: Plaintiff motorcyclist was operating his vehicle in Arlington when he was forced off the road by defendant’s vehicle, causing him to crash and suffer a broken collarbone, in addition to lesser injuries. Liability was initially denied as the defendant did not make contact with plaintiff’s vehicle, and due to a police report which did not attribute fault to either party. However, after obtaining a favorable eyewitness statement, the defendant entered into settlement negotiations. The parties agreed to a settlement before a lawsuit was filed.

Ryan Quinn, plaintiff’s counsel, provided case information. [022-T-106]
