Recent Settlements Involving Back Injury
$3,750,000 — Back injury settlement for bus accident victim
We represented a 76-year-old who suffered a severed spinal cord when he was rear-ended by a San Francisco Municipal Railway bus. The bus driver was drunk, and our investigation revealed an extensive history of substance abuse and prior accidents. The accident left our client as a T-5 paraplegic. The settlement included enough money to provide him with the needed life care diagnosed by our experts.
Our 30-year-old client from Vallejo was driving his motorcycle slightly above the speed limit when a slow-moving backhoe in front of him moved partially into the shoulder and then started turning left in front of our client, causing him to lay down his motorcycle, fracture his back and injure his spinal cord, which required spinal fusions at two vertebral levels. The adverse party predictably argued that our client was going at an excessive speed, but our expert motorcycle accident reconstructionist proved otherwise.
