Bicycle Law

Often we hear about some horrible ruling by a court against  a Plaintiff Cyclist in a personal injury case.  Happily, the Tennessee Court of Appeals has delivered an opinion in the case, Wineland vs. City of Cleveland, et al, wherein the City as well as the State of Tennessee are held liable for damages to a cyclist whose front wheel was eaten by one of those old-fashioned grates causing her to endo on to her face.

I’m posting the url to the opinion by Judge Susano here.  If it doesn’t work for you and you would like the pdf, let me know.
