One minute you are living a carefree lifestyle — cruising down the open road, bathed in sunlight as you rev the engine on your hog — and the next minute, a tragic motorcycle accident leaves you without the ability to open or close your hand.
One man experienced it and for it he won a record $44.9 million lawsuit for a 2006 motorcycle crash that left him paralyzed and killed the driver of the car who hit him. It took almost three years, but this man will come away from this painful experiences with one of the biggest lawsuit winnings in American history.
Our paralysis lawyers know that no amount of money can replace the void that comes from living with paralysis. A motorcycle accident can cause severe spinal cord injuries that reduce or take away an injured person’s ability to move or feel their body like they used to.
On October 22, 2006, the man in this case got into a motorcycle accident when a woman– who was behind the wheel of her Chervrolet Corvett — crashed into him near Cape Coral, Florida. The woman experienced a wrongful death from the accident and was 45-years-old when she died.
Motorcycle groups have been trying to raise funds for the surviving motorcyclist and his daughter since the accident to pay for his cost of living, which has gone up since he became paralyzed. Hopefully now, with the settlement breaking records, he can take care of his paralysis treatments, as well as his family.
