$400,000 Settlement – Personal Injury – Product liability cause for cycling injury
Michael Jainchill settled a product-liability case for $400,000 on behalf of a 58 year-old gentleman from South Windsor, Connecticut, who suffered a fracture of his humerus and dislocation of his right shoulder as the result of a fall from a bicycle when a piece of debris was lodged between the front fender and tire. The bicycle seller had improperly installed the front-fender mechanism and failed to use the quick-release mechanism which was provided as part of the fender assembly. This mechanism is designed to allow the stays of a front fender to disengage from the fork of the front wheel in the event anything became lodged between the fender and the tire. The case was pending in Tolland County.
