Motorcyclist Avoiding Turning Tractor Takes The Ditch
Our client was driving his motorcycle down a country road following a tractor pulling a hay wagon. The tractor, which was half on the right shoulder to allow vehicles to pass, made a left turn into his driveway as our client was alongside the tractor to pass. Our client veered away from the tractor and avoided a collision but crashed into the ditch and received a severe closed head injury. He was not wearing a helmet at the time of the accident.
Our client was in a coma for 9 days and suffered a traumatic brain injury. Jeff Sieben obtained a settlement from the insurance company of the farmer in the amount of $100,000.
