Near Seven-Figure Settlement after a Motorcycle and Truck Collided
Our client was operating his motorcycle northbound on Pendleton Avenue at the entrance ramp to I-69 in Indianapolis, Indiana. At the same time, the Defendant, in the scope of his employment, was operating a pick-up truck and trailer southbound on Pendleton Avenue. While attempting to make a sudden left-hand turn, the Defendant drove directly into the path of our client causing a collision. The impact caused our client to be was forcibly thrown into and against the windshield of the Defendant's truck.
This collision was the direct and proximate result of the careless and negligent acts and omissions of the Defendants, including, but not limited to, failing to keep a proper lookout for oncoming traffic, failing to yield the right-of-way to an oncoming vehicle, and attempting a left hand turn when it was unsafe to do so.
As a result of this collision, our client sustained serious, permanent, and life-threatening injuries including dislocation and fracture of his left arm, torn ligaments in his left arm, fractured left thumb, multiple fractures of his right arm, lacerations to his hands and arms, closed head injury, lacerations to his eyelid and both his legs, lacerations to his left thigh, and a staph infection. Due to his injuries, our client missed several months of work.
