Kalka & Baer LLC Files Complaint Seeking Over $100K for Client Injured in Motorcycle Crash

At Kalka & Baer LLC, we are committed to helping our clients secure as much financial compensation as possible in their personal injury cases. In a recent case filed with the State Court of Fulton County, we sought over $100k in damages in a case where our client was seriously injured in a motorcycle accident.

The incident occurred on May 8, 2013. Our client was driving his motorcycle north on Kings Rd. at the same time the defendant was driving a 2011 Toyota Land Cruiser north on Kings Rd. The defendant made an improper U-Turn in front of our client's motorcycle, which caused the collision. Our client subsequently suffered serious and debilitating injuries as a result of the collision including: a fractured hip, injuries to his left knee, groin, penile shaft, perineal nerve, scrotum and testicles, which have resulted in sexual and erectile dysfunction.

The complaint that we filed with the court argued that the defendant's negligence included:

  • U-Turn Prohibited (O.C.G.A. § 40-6-121)
  • Negligently Travelling at an Excessive Speed
  • Negligently Failing to Keep a Proper Lookout
  • Negligently Failing to Use or Sound a Signal Warning
  • Negligently Failing to Make a Proper Application of the Brakes
  • Failing to Maintain Proper Control of the Vehicle

As a result of this tragic accident, our client has and will continue to incur reasonable, necessary and continuing medical expenses which are expected to exceed $100,000. Additionally, as a result of the defendant's negligence, our client has suffered physical pain, mental anguish, loss of enjoyment of life, inconvenience, and other injuries.

On behalf of our client, Kalka & Baer LLC is seeking relief against the defendants for personal injuries; mental anguish; disability; loss of capacity for the enjoyment of life; incidental expenses; lost wages; permanent injuries; attorney's fees; the costs associated with litigation; past, present and future medical expenses.
