$145,000 Settlement For Motorcyclist
$145,000 Settlement: While out for a ride on his motorcycle, our client was forced to make a split second decision in order to avoid an oncoming vehicle that had turned into his path. He chose to lock up his brakes to try to avoid being struck by the full size truck operated by the defendant driver. In doing so, he ended up overturning the motorcycle and skidding for over 25 feet before coming to a stop on the side of the road. Our client was transported to the emergency room and was treated for numerous rib fractures, a pulmonary contusion and a left shoulder fracture. After continual pain in his shoulder, he was later diagnosed with a rotator cuff rupture which required surgery. The insurance company fought the issue of liability due to the fact that their insured vehicle did not physically come into contact with our client. After attempting to negotiate an amicable settlement, our office was forced to file suit against the owner and the driver of the vehicle. After months of litigation, our office was able to secure a settlement of $145,000 for our client prior to mediation. Injuries: Multiple rib fractures, pulmonary contusion, left scapular (shoulder) fracture, ruptured rotator cuff requiring surgery. Damages: Past and future medical care, past lost wages, past and future pain and suffering. GOLDSTEIN v. RAPHAEL & TUCKER ELECTRIC.
