Incident Details: The incident took place on November 28, 2022, as Mr. Li was crossing a street near a 76-gas station on Reservoir Street in Pomona. Even after activating the pedestrian signal and ensuring the road was clear, Mr. Li was hit by a truck driven by Norma A. Zidema, who failed to yield while making a right turn off the 60 freeway. Injuries and Medical Treatment: Mr. Li suffered devastating injuries, including a closed head injury that necessitated a craniotomy to reduce brain pressure due to a subdural hematoma. His injuries have led to serious neurological and physical issues, including memory loss, balance problems, and significant hearing loss, with medical expenses topping $180,000. Settlement and Legal Representation: The $1.5 million settlement, which matches the policy limits of Ms. Zidema’s insurer, Safeco/Liberty Mutual, was obtained without filing a lawsuit. Attorney Dan Hoffman, who represented Mr. Li, highlighted that the settlement not only addresses the hefty medical costs but also sets a precedent for the accountability of drivers in ensuring the safety of cyclists.
