Motorcycle Driver Needs Leg Amputation
A 26-year-old man was out for a motorcycle ride when a commercial van took a left in front of him on a green light. Our client suffered multiple fractures to his lower leg, a shoulder injury, and “road rash.” The leg injury required several surgeries, but they were unsuccessful in healing the fractures. Unfortunately, one year later, the client underwent an amputation of his lower leg.
Paul Downes and SiebenCarey conducted a thorough investigation, summarized medical records and bills, and hired various experts to address the financial ramifications of the crash. This work included consideration of past medical expenses, his future medical expenses for a lifetime with a prosthetic leg, and his diminished future wage loss.
After extensive negotiations, Paul Downes settled the case for $4 million, the maximum amount available under the van driver's insurance policy.
