San Antonio personal injury attorneys help injured motorcyclist settle case for $155k

The victim of a motorcycle collision settled with insurance company for $155k with the help of The Carlson Law Firm personal injury attorneys, Edna Elizondo and John Hodges.

The Carlson Law Firm’s client was in a line of vehicles sitting at a stopped traffic light. While the traffic light was red, the driver in front of the client dropped her cell phone and reached to pick it up. Doing so, put her vehicle in reverse. When the light turned green, the driver accelerated backwards, striking the client and pinning the motorcyclist into the vehicle behind him.

“This case is a perfect example of how dangerous a distracted driver can be. Our client was seriously injured when another driver was paying attention to her cell phone, and ignoring the 2,000 pounds of steel that she was driving. Fortunately, our client was brave enough to proceed into litigation with our team and make sure that the carrier was held responsible for their distracted driver,” said John Hodges.

The victim sustained painful injuries in his right shoulder, left knee, right ear and left hand. The victim was diagnosed with tears, thinning parts and joint fluid in his left knee. The accident has caused significant pain and regular migraines. Due to the pain in his knee, the victim underwent a surgical procedure to repair the damage from the crash.

“With our help, our client was able to get the assistance he needed. We were not afraid to work the case in order to get the best recovery. Unfortunately, we had to file a lawsuit in order to get the carrier to do what was fair,” said personal injury attorney, Edna Elizondo.
