The driver of a semi-truck (the defendant) was traveling along the same road as a man on a motorcycle (the plaintiff). When the semi-truck turned into a driveway unexpectedly, the motorcyclist crashed into him.
Motorcycle accidents are particularly dangerous. The exposure of the rider and lack of protection can result in very serious injuries or even death. Unfortunately, such accidents are all too frequent. Other vehicle operators tend to be less aware of the motorcycle rider and the result is an injury accident and in some cases a fatality. If you or a loved one has suffered a motorcycle accident that resulted in injuries, it is important that you contact a Martin County motorcycle accident attorney. In order to recover certain types of compensation it is often more productive to turn over the insurance claim to a qualified personal injury lawyer who is familiar with dealing with insurance claims and can take this part of the problem off your plate.
The plaintiff suffered substantial injuries and was rushed to the hospital. He was then forced to have routine doctor visits, rehabilitation therapy, and daily check-ups. He was unable to work from the accident and his lawyers fought hard to seek maximum compensation. A settlement of $1 million was agreed upon.
