Motorcyclist Sustains Serious Injuries in Automobile Accident; Settled for $250,000
A 38-year-old plaintiff was riding his motorcycle northbound on the I-5 freeway when a driver attempted to change lanes immediately in front of the plaintiff, forcing the plaintiff to move to the lane immediately to his left. As a result, the plaintiff struck a stopped vehicle, sustaining multiple severe injuries. These included traumatic hemorrhagic shock, a Grade IV liver injury with active bleeding, and multiple fractures in his ribs and left hand. As the plaintiff did not have liability insurance, he could not collect for pain and suffering; represented by Jeffrey A. Milman of Hodes Milman Liebeck, LLP, he settled for policy limits in the amount of $250,000.
