Cannon & Dunphy S.C. obtained a $1.1 million policy limit payout for the victim of a motorcycle accident, a 63-year-old man who sustained severe shoulder and back injuries when he collided with a pickup truck.
According to reports, the pick-up truck was hauling a trailer to a job site when the driver turned left in front of the biker. After the accident, the injured man was unable to return to his job as a full-time machine operator because of his injuries. When one insurance company tried to deny payment for his damages, Cannon & Dunphy S.C. won a summary judgment motion requiring the insurer to cover the truck driver’s negligence. There was a secondary policy as well.
With the help of a vocational expert, Cannon & Dunphy S.C. was able to calculate past and future wage loss in additional to the medical bills for treatment of the man’s injuries. The case settled for the policy limits of $1.1 million. Additionally, the firm negotiated a reduction in the medical bill payments while the case was pending, along with a substantial reduction in the amount the client needed to repay for employer-provided medical coverage.
