$790,000 Jury Verdict – Motorcycle Collision

Our client was struck by a rent-to-own company van while going through an intersection on his Harley-Davidson motorcycle. He suffered a compound lower leg (tibial plateau) fracture. We filed this case in federal court in Opelika, Alabama. The insurance company believed the local conservative jury would not give significant pain and suffering award. We tried the case in Montgomery, Alabama in December 2012. The paid judgment was $350,000 more than the insurance company’s top pretrial offer.
