Motorcycle Rider Fractures Ankle Surgery
Our uninsured driver of a 1982 Harley Davidson, was seriously injured when an executive cut him off as she was exiting a driveway on a main city street. Ankle surgery was required. The claim was taken over from another national law firm “specializing” in motorcycle collisions which was actually charging a lower fee but was not responsive to the client’s needs. Despite the fact that the client was limited in his claim to the $65,000 in medical bills under Proposition 213 (the worse piece of consumer legislation passed in the last 15 years in the opinion of Russell & Lazarus), the claim was settled for the defendant’s insurance limits of $100,000 plus $42,000 out of her own pocket after Russell & Lazarus conducted an in depth asset analysis. Russell & Lazarus was able to obtain a recovery of $77,000 over what the law allowed as a result of hiring a Life Care Planner who provided testimony that the client would have future life care needs despite having a good recovery.
