Overcoming Liability Disputes

Andrew, 31, was heading to work on a balmy June afternoon. As he approached a downtown intersection, the light turned green. His motorcycle was impacted on the right side by a Prius sedan running the red light.

Andrew was thrown into the air, bounced and rolled along the pavement, suffering extensive road rash and a serious puncture wound. The other driver lost control of her vehicle, colliding with two parked cars before coming to a stop.

Despite multiple witness statements verifying a green light for Andrew, the insurance company for the Prius driver denied all liability, claiming that she entered the intersection on a “stale yellow” light. They argued that it was Andrew’s responsibility to wait until all traffic was clear before proceeding into the intersection — even with a green light.

The legal team at the Arnold Law Firm proceeded with filing a complaint against the Prius driver and demanded policy limits from her insurance company. Within one week, the insurance company reversed its stance and tendered the $15,000 insurance limits.
