The Nance Cacciatore law firm has a wealth of experience representing clients who have been involved in tragic motorcycles accidents. We’ve had the privilege of seeing our clients receive some sizable and noteworthy verdicts over the decades of service to the community. Our client was heading southbound on US 1 on his Indian motorcycle, not wearing a helmet, when the defendant made a left turn in front of him, violating his right-of-way. Various witnesses to the accident testified that the defendant must not have seen our client and also testified that our client was traveling within 5 mph of the posted 45 mph zone.
Due to the nature of the impact, the plaintiff was thrown some 10 feet into the air and landed on his back on the asphalt. He was unconscious at the scene and bleeding from his ears and mouth. He spent the next 8 days in an induced coma. He was ultimately diagnosed with a traumatic brain injury, left temporal bone skull fracture, post-traumatic epilepsy and seizure disorder, headaches, neck and shoulder pain, and a balance disorder. He was unable to return to his occupation in the automotive field. Nance Cacciatore settled with all insurance companies involved for $1.2 million. Our firm was extremely happy to be able to come to such a settlement for our client after he endured such a traumatic experience.
