Family of Surgeon Killed in Bike Crash Recovers $13M

A jury awarded $17.4 million to the family of a surgeon who sustained fatal injuries in a collision with a medical transport van while bicycling to work. In 2009, Michael Mazurek was riding his bicycle when he was reportedly cut off by an ambulance driver making a turn in front of him. The bicyclist died several weeks later from the injuries he suffered. His wife and three young sons sued American Medical Response and Gonzalez, alleging motor vehicle negligence. The defense argued that Mazurek ran a stop sign seconds before the crash and Gonzalez could not see him because it was dark. The jury found Mazurek 25 percent comparatively negligent, which reduced the family’s award to $13 million. Estate of Mazurek v. American Medical Response Inc.

Client Reviews
I retained Ilya Frangos of Galine, Frye, Fitting & Frangos on a business litigation matter involving a frivolous lawsuit filed in federal court. Ilya guided me through the case and helped make sure that I understood the process… He always took the time to answer all my questions and helped put my mind at ease. I would highly recommend him and this firm! Agatha
I called Mr Frye after my wife had passed away… John listened to my case over the phone, after aggreeing to represent me, handled everything from there… I have already recommended Mr Frye to a friend for help with a similiar case and would without reserve recommend him to anybody. He came highly recommended as an expert in these type cases, and I believe he demonstrated this personally. Jerry
Chantel Fitting is as good as it gets. If you have been injured, need help and cant get what you know you deserve from one of the big insurance companies, then you have got to call Chantel. She will fight for you like it was her that was hurt… She cares. Call her. You wont be sorry you did. Cindy C.
A great experience. Excellent law firm which treats their client's with the utmost respect. Very knowledgeable and made me fell extremely secure when handling my personal injury claim. Would highly recommend Galine, Frye, Fitting & Frangos to handle your next case. Lisa D.
I was fortunate enough to have been represented and retained by this law firm for my injuries sustained by an under insured motorist. I must say Chantel Fitting and Illya Frangos went above and beyond trying to resolve my case… I would highly recommend this law firm and stop shopping around if you are looking for the best, as this is as good as it gets.
