$250,000.00 Motorcycle Personal Injury Settlement By Bottaro Law
May 25th, 2021
At Bottaro Law, we have longed helped bikers injured in motorcycle accidents receive top compensation for their personal injuries, lost wages, and bike damage throughout Rhode Island and Massachusetts.
In today’s blog, I will review a $250,000.00 settlement obtained for a Warwick, RI couple involved in a horrific motorcycle accident.
Who’s At Fault In A Motorcycle Accident?
This case can illustrate the above question. When you call or text us (401-777-7777) immediately after a bike accident, we get to work investigating the important question of who is at fault.
In this case, our clients were riding with friends on a clear fall day through Rhode Island and through Connecticut.
As the group of riders hit an intersection, they had a green arrow. Most of the group got through. However, for some reason, a careless driver in an SUV approached the light from the other direction, and sped through, crushing our clients and forcing their bike down.
After a motorcycle crash, you should know that all insurance companies (yes, even your won!), will look for ways to avoid payment, deny your claim, and find you fully or partially at fault. This means that your claim for money for your injuries or bike could be minimized or destroyed altogether.
That is why you must call or text me right away!
In this case, our clients did so and we got right to work, ensuring the insurance companies could not speak to our clients without us, their lawyers. And we also went out and interviewed the witnesses and other bikers, quickly obtaining valuable statements and photos, before memories faded or evidence was lost.
This resulted in successful arguments to the insurance companies that our clients had the right of way. Nailing down “fault” is an important task that we jump on when you contact us for free.
What Is My Motorcycle Accident Case Worth? Fractures, Surgeries, And Pain And Suffering
Both clients suffered serious injuries. The injuries here included an open right comminuted proximal tibia fracture with intraarticular extension and displaced transverse right patellar fracture for one rider. Our other client suffered a grade 3 open right tibia fracture and right fibula fracture requiring intramedullary nailing (staples to close her wound).
It was gratifying to meet them both at the outset of their injuries to provide positive encouragement, and later in the case as they were recovering.
Having handled numerous motorcycle crash cases, my team and I knew how important it was to relieve our clients’ stress. It is hard enough to recover from a significant motorcycle accident; our clients did not need the added burden of dealing with insurance companies.
Ultimately, we settled for maximum policy limits on both the at-fault driver’s Bodily injury insurance and our client’s motorcycle insurance.
