BOTH sides of single bike crash win jury verdicts in Virginia

Can both sides of a single bike crash win jury verdicts in Virginia ?
The answer is “yes.”
With the recent verdict in a fatal bike crash case in Montgomery County, Triathlon Trial Lawyer Doug Landau points out that we can see that not only can both sides of a crash case lose, due to contributory negligence and assumption of the risk, but both sides can also win when there are negligent third parties involved.
In the Blacksburg Triathlon case, the bicyclist who died from injuries sustained in the June 2000 race won a verdict against the race sponsor and director. More recently, the driver he smashed into won a jury verdict when she was able to show that these same Defendants were negligent.
