Motorcyclist Loses Leg From Horrible Crash

$1,500,000

Litigation Type - Motorcycle Accidents

Client Injury - Amputation

Our client, a 73-year-old grandfather and great-grandfather, was approaching an intersection with a green light on his motorcycle. A vehicle operated by a driver with failing health, unexpectedly executed a left-hand turn in front of our client and a horrible collision between the two occurred. Our client sustained severe internal injuries, multiple broken bones, road rash and, ultimately, a lower leg amputation.

Cory Whalen fought for his client, simultaneously pursuing a loss of consortium claim on behalf of the man's wife. He was able to obtain a $1.5 million settlement from the at-fault driver's insurance company and his own motorcycle insurer.
