Broken Arm as the Result of a Bicycle Accident on Unsafe Trail

Our client suffered a broken arm as a result of a bicycle accident while riding on a bike trail in Iowa City and traveling around a sharp curve that was covered in dirt and sand. We brought a claim against the City of Iowa City and obtained expert opinions that the curve was not designed or maintained accordance with applicable guidelines because it was too sharp. We also located and secured testimony from several eyewitnesses that the curve was very dangerous and that, despite the City's claim, our client was not traveling too fast. This case was settled after Brady Preston Gronlund obtained a favorable court ruling establishing that the City could be sued for negligently designing and failing to maintain the bike trail.
