Litigation Type - Motorcycle Accidents

Client Injury - Back Injury

Our client was a passenger on a motorcycle that was participating in a bike run with approximately 130 other motorcycles. The group of motorcycles were merging from an on ramp to Highway 169 and had to slow quickly. Several motorcycles lost control and tipped over, including the motorcycle our client was riding on. She and the driver were thrown off the motorcycle into the roadway. A motorcycle behind our client tried to stop but ended up driving over our client.

Our client received two broken vertebrae, six cracked ribs, a punctured lung and multiple scrapes and bruises. She underwent a back fusion and a two level laminectomy.

Our client's total medical expenses were over $166,000 and her wage loss was over $4,000.

Shannon Carey and John Carey settled her claim against several involved insurance companies, obtaining a total settlement of $260,000.
