David A. Cook, an Associate at Levinson Axelrod, P.A., secured a policy limits settlement for a motorcycle rider who suffered a serious foot crush injury.
Per case records, our client has been riding his motorcycle in a residential neighborhood when another vehicle that had been stopped at a stop sign on a cross street suddenly pulled out to turn across his path. Our client served in an attempt to avoid the vehicle.
Unfortunately, he was unable to avoid the vehicle entirely, and clipped the rear bumper. The impact caused his motorcycle to fall over, crushing his foot in the fall.
As a result of his injury, our client required extensive medical treatment, including days with his foot in cryotherapy and two surgical procedures. He later developed Complex Regional Pain Syndrome, and underwent extensive rehabilitation therapy.
Given our client’s considerable medical bills, pain and suffering, and other damages, Attorney David A. Cook sought the maximum possible compensation, and succeeded in settling the case for $250,000, the full limits of the other driver’s insurance policy.
