John Doe v. Landlord, Tenant, Intersection Designer and Contractor & Florida Department of Transportation
We successfully resolved a complex liability case against a commercial landowner and business tenant who, by negligently allowing overgrown foliage at the corner of their property adjacent to an intersection, created a line of sight problem for a truck and a bicyclist who was on a morning ride. The Florida Traffic Homicide Report concluded that a contributing cause of the crash and the decedent’s death was the overgrown foliage.
Additional defendants included the intersection designer and contractor and the Florida Department of Transportation for negligent design, construction and maintenance. Our law firm also resolved a claim for Uninsured Motorist benefits for the Estate of the Decedent/Bicyclist.
