Motorcycle Accidents

Motorcycle Accident- 150000.0000

$150,000 Settlement -

Our client was driving his motorcycle on a rural road in Stockbridge, Georgia. It was the night before Thanksgiving and he was on his way to a local factory where he worked the overnight shift. As he was approaching a three way intersection, a slower moving tractor trailer tow truck towing a box truck was making a right turn in front of him. Our client, at some point, moved into the opposite lane of travel and as he was going around the truck, another driver pulled out from the roadway where the truck was turning and struck our client nearly head on.

Because the wreck occurred in the lane of travel for vehicles going in the opposite direction, our client was given a citation for improper passing. There were three independent witnesses who saw the collision and their testimony confirmed that our client was in the opposite lane of travel when the collision occurred. Following the collision, our client was given a citation for improper passing.

Due to his injuries, and prior to consulting with us, he made a decision to pay the ticket rather than fight it in court. Unbeknownst to our client, under Georgia law, when a ticket is simply paid, it is an admission of guilt and that admission can be used against you in any civil case. Thus, we were presented with a situation in which the defense could use the fact that our client paid the ticket against him. Through diligent investigation and development of the facts, we were able to show that our client should not have been ticketed in the first place and the police officer simply made the wrong call. As a result of diligent investigation and factual development we were able to settle this Atlanta Personal Injury Case for $150,000.00.

Motorcycle Injury- 125000.0000

$125,000 -

As he was driving his Motorcycle in Coweta County, our client put on his right turn signal and slowed in order to make a right turn. As he was in the process of making his right turn, he was struck from behind by an inattentive and speeding driver. Although the force of the impact was significant, our client was able to maintain control of his motorcycle and bring it to a safe stop on the grassy shoulder on the side of the road.

Following the wreck, our client took himself to the emergency room and was told to follow up with an orthopedist for his neck pain. The first orthopedist treated the injury as a simple, "whiplash" type of injury, but based upon the description of the pain from our client, we decided that it was best that he get a second opinion. Our client received a second opinion and following a series of diagnostic tests it was confirmed that he had herniated disks in his neck and would require a surgery.

The other driver only had minimal liability limits, but because our client had good underinsured motorist coverage we were able to secure a settlement for the combined policy limits of $125,000.00. We are happy to report that our client is doing much better since his surgery, but still has lingering pain associated with this preventable accident.
