Suit Over Death of Man Hit by Truck While Riding Bicycle Settles for $7.5M
Attorney Ben Brodhead said the case's relatively speedy settlement indicated that the defendant driver's insurer, USAA, know it would likely pay more had it gone to trial.
The mother of a man from Liberty County, Georgia, who was fatally injured on Christmas Day 2018 while riding the bicycle he’d been given the day before has settled her wrongful death claims for $7.5 million claims with the defendant driver’s insurer.
The deceased, Erik Konig of Hinesville in southeast Georgia, had “fallen on hard times” and was unemployed with no fixed address or means of transportation, said Atlanta-based Brodhead Law principal Ben Brodhead.
