While riding his motorcycle on the freeway, our client was hit by a car that moved into his lane and despite not hitting the pavement, suffered injuries while trying to keep his motorcycle from falling down and getting run over. The insurance company for the other driver disputed fault, claimed that he could not have been injured, alleged his medical treatment was unnecessary and unrelated to the accident, and claimed that the medical bills were excessive. After a week and a half long trial, the jury came back with a verdict, awarding our client five times more than the insurance carrier offered prior to the trial.
Throughout the trial, the insurance company tried to prove that our client was not injured, even hiring an expert witness in an attempt to disprove our client’s claim. The expert claimed that if a motorcycle had swayed either way, it would have fallen over but since it stayed upright, the impact was minimal. However, the evidence showed the contrary and thankfully, our client will now have the money he needs for current and future medical bills.
