Bill* was taking part of his favorite hobby, riding his motorcycle, on what was the perfect day: clear, sunny skies, and good road conditions. Then the unexpected—a dump truck cut him off and knocked him off his bike. The impact pulled Bill under the truck where he sustained various injuries to his limbs.
Rubenstein Law partner Christopher Gaj proved to the defense that Bill was not riding carelessly, as they tried to convey, but that the negligence was on the side of the defendant. They initially offered Bill zero dollars, but Rubenstein Law worked hard to make sure Bill got the compensation he deserves.
Because of his injuries and surgeries, he won't be able to work or walk the same again. His pastimes of riding and camping won't be possible anymore. The accident altered the course of Bill's life.
"I've never seen a client be so brave," said Bill's attorney Chris Gaj. "He has to relearn to do simple things and remodel his home to make it handicap accessible. But he's been optimistic during this process, especially for someone who did nothing wrong—he was riding at speed limit and didn't violate any traffic laws."
A quick lane change or a few minutes of tailgating is all it takes for a reckless driver to cause a terrible motorcycle accident. Because of the unique nature and lack of protection for riders of moped and motorcycles in accidents, the injuries are often severe.
