Our client was driving his motorcycle when the defendant driver, who was driving a truck, turned in front our client’s motorcycle causing a collision that resulted in a significant injury to our client. When the defendant’s truck struck the motorcycle, our client was catapulted into the air before landing violently onto the road. He was taken via ambulance to a nearby hospital. After an investigation, the defendant was found to be at fault for causing the accident and was cited.
Our client was admitted to the hospital, where doctors determined he had suffered injury to his pelvic joint. The following day, he underwent surgery to repair the injury to his pelvis and surgeons were required to place metal plates to stabilize the injury. Once he was discharged from the hospital, our client began physical therapy and was expected to make a full recovery from the accident.
Shortly after the accident, our client contacted us to assist him in his recovery. Although at first it appeared that the at-fault driver had liability insurance, it turned out that he had not added the vehicle to the policy prior to the collision with our client. Luckily, our client was covered under an underinsured motorist policy through his own auto insurance and we were able to obtain a policy limits settlement for him under that policy.
