This bicycle rider must have been suicidal, and mommy is trying to cash in on it now. Things like this is one of the reasons insurance is so expensive, many trucking companies will settle out of court even when they, or their employee is not at fault.

I hope it goes to court and mommy gets nothing and has to pay all court costs for both sides.

If it goes to court and mommy gets nothing she will have to pay attorneys fees and court costs for both sides. That's the great thing about our legal system. The loser pays all.

When my nephew at 14 was hit by a car when crossing the street my sister had to pay for the damage to the car since it was determined the car had the right away. I don't see how the mother can collect when her son was clearly at fault.

Come on, Orlando....I had to read 6 comments before I got to the one questioning the driver's legal status. Where are the rest of you racists out there? Doing some last minute shopping?
What is racist about questioning one's legal status.

Wow after seven years this is the first time I have seen this and it is sad... This was my fiancee you guys are talking about a human being. If you must know he was riding his bike to Howey in the hills to make sure I was okay. Yes he was a Carney years before he came to Florida for one summer. His mom should not have sued the man could not avoid Scott but be mind full that this man was amazing had a heart of gold and was determined to change the world so that kids didn't have to grow up the way he did. This was a great soul lost! You all should be ashamed of yourselves.

I am offended by the term "cyclist". This was a guy riding a bike. A "cyclist" would not be riding at 12:30am (that's 30 minutes past midnight) and if they were, they would be using lights.
I am a cyclist.
Don't be offended. Go buy yourself a dictionary.

CYCLIST 1. a person who rides or travels by bicycle, motorcycle, etc
