The Everett HeraldNet.com reports that Snohomish County has agreed to pay a bicyclist $300,000 for a bicycle accident he suffered in late 2005 when he was hit by a public works employee while riding his bicycle to work.
According to the report, Ryan Abbott, who was in his late 20’s, was riding his bicycle east on Hewitt Avenue around 6:25 am in downtown Everett when a county utility worker pulled in front of him. Abbott suffered broken elbows which rendered him unable to perform his physically demanding job at a lumber yard. The settlement will allow him to train for a new career.
The case did not go to trial and the settlement was reached with the help of a mediator.
