Portland Bicyclist Seeking $10,000 in Fall Lawsuit
The cyclist fell and suffered a concussion as well as scrapes and bruises up and down her body. The lawsuit claims the gap was unmarked and dangerous.
The owner of the particular stretch of railroad says he offered the injured woman $749 and repaired the gap within a day of learning what happened. However, the costs to repair her custom-made bicycle far exceed $4,000 and her medical costs for the accident were $110.
The woman and her attorney dispute that she was never offered any settlement and plan on taking the matter to court.
