A 21 year-old apprentice electrician was a hit by a car while riding his motorcycle that made a left turn in front of him. The motorcyclist was proceeding straight with the right of way in Alameda when the motorist traveling in the opposite direction cut off his right of way and turned left in front of him.
Apparently, the driver thought the motorcyclist had a stop sign and that the driver had the right of way. This was not the case, as there was no stop sign in either direction. The driver was 100% responsible for causing the motorcycle accident.
As a result of the accident, the motorcyclist suffered serious injuries including two broken fingers, which were repaired with a surgery at Kaiser in Oakland. He also underwent a short course of physical therapy after the surgery. He sought recovery of his medical expenses and a modest loss of earnings.
He sought our Oakland personal injury team to help him navigate his personal injury case. He opted to settle quickly for the $100,000 insurance policy limits, just one month after presenting his demand. Prior to acceptance of the policy limits offer, Sally Morin personal injury attorney confirmed that the negligent driver had no significant assets from which to recover further settlement monies.
