Client Injury - Fractured Pelvis, Fractured Arm
An avid motorcyclist was passing through a city in Michigan on a trip from Ohio to Minnesota when he was struck by a dump truck. The motorcyclist was proceeding straight through an intersection on a green light and was hit by the dump truck who was making a left turn and failed to yield the right of way. The collision threw the motorcyclist off his bike and his motorcycle was wedged under the dump truck. He was transported by ambulance to a local hospital. The trauma services needed were not available at that hospital so our client was airlifted to St. Mary's Medical Center in Duluth, MN.
Our client sustained significant injuries and underwent surgery at St. Mary's Medical Center to fix his shattered pelvis, shattered radius and left hand. He spent a week in the hospital after his surgery and several weeks at a rehab facility for therapy. Our client's treatment resulted in extensive medical expenses at the time of the accident as well as significant future medical expenses as doctors expect that he will need a hip replacement in the future as a result of the serious pelvic fracture caused by this accident.
Mike Scully recovered $240,000 to help our client with massive medical bills and permanent injuries sustained in the collision.
