Our client was riding his motorcycle behind another motorcycle when a saddle bag on the lead motorcycle fell off and into the path of our client’s motorcycle. Our client attempted to swerve his motorcycle and in doing so put his foot down on the pavement causing a wrenching type injury to his ACL in the knee.
We were able to prove that the saddle bag on the first motorcycle had been removed the day before the accident by a repair shop and that the owner had prior problems with the bag coming lose as a result of dropping the motorcycle in the past.
On behalf of our client, we made a claim against the first motorcycle rider’s insurance company and the repair shop’s insurance company and were able to settle our client’s case for the combined sum of $150,000.00.
I then discounted my fee from 33 1/3% to 25% (plus costs) for this client, as he had just retired from the military, as a thank you to him for the service to our country.
I offer the same discounts to former and current military service persons and their families, as well as to senior citizens. Please call for details and conditions.
