Federal Exprees Vehicle Runs Plaintiff Off the Road

Federal Exprees Vehicle Runs Plaintiff Off the Road

Posted By The Dunnion Law Firm || 27-Dec-2011

A salesman was riding his motorcycle home from work on Golden State Boulevard south of Fresno when a Federal Express driver became impatient waiting for a train and made an illegal u-turn, striking the man on the side of his motorcycle, and causing a severe fracture of his left ankle.

To make matters worse, Federal Express refused to accept responsibility for the accident and told the man he should have been paying attention and should have avoided the accident.

The man’s fractured ankle required surgery to repair and he missed several weeks from work. Fortunately, the man was able to continue working on light duty for nearly 18 months while he recovered from the injury. Unluckily, Federal Express refused to fairly compensate the man so he turned to The Dunnion Law Firm for help.

Federal Express initially offered the man $10,000.00 to settle his claim. After months of litigation and the pressure of a quickly approaching trial date, Federal Express changed its tune and paid the man a reasonable $143,750.00.
