$2,250,000 Settlement for Motorcycle Collision
Our clients, a husband and wife, suffered severe disabling crush injuries to their legs necessitating extensive surgeries when the motorcycle they were driving was struck by a car turning directly into their path. The motorcycle driver suffered severe comminuted fractures from his ankle up to his knee. The leg fractures to his tibia and fibula resulting in the use of an external fixator. The motorcycle passenger suffered fractures of her hips, crush injuries to her left thigh and calf, a torn knee ligament, a pelvic fracture as well as a fractured jaw and teeth. Both clients underwent multiple surgeries with a long painful recovery and rehabilitation and sustained permanent disabilities of their left lower extremities. We prepared a video settlement brochure that included an accident simulation as well as documentation of their extensive surgeries, medical treatment and rehabilitation with interviews from their health care providers. The case resolved after mediation for $2,250,000.00.
