A man was out for a weekend motorcycle ride on his Harley Davidson when a careless woman pulled out from a parking lot striking the right side of the motorcycle pinning his right leg between the car bumper and the motorcycle. The man’s injuries were life altering. The man was airlifted to the trauma unit in Fresno, California, where he remained hospitalized for a full month before being transferred to a rehab hospital in San Francisco. Multiple surgeries were performed attempting to save the man’s leg. The surgeries were not successful and the man’s right leg was amputated below the knee.
The careless woman’s insurance policy had a limit of $100,000.00. The Dunnion Law Firm made every possible effort to get a more substantial recovery. Suit was filed and the defendant’s assets were researched thoroughly. Finally, just before trial, the defendants stipulated to judgment in the sum of $1,100,000.00.
