Our client was traveling eastbound on Highway 293 in Bartow County on his
motorcycle, when another driver traveling westbound made a left-hand turn
in front of him. The other driver failed to yield to the oncoming traffic
when he hit our client, causing his
motorcycle to collide with their passenger door. Immediately our client was life-flighted from
the scene of the accident to the hospital where he was examined for his
injuries. The other driver was interviewed by the police who determined
him to be fully at fault due to his improper left turn violation.
Extent of Our Client’s Injuries
Once at the hospital, it was discovered that our client had suffered multiple
catastrophic injuries including multiple fractures in his leg and both
wrists. He underwent his first surgery for the fractures in his right
leg the day after the accident. One week later, he had another surgical
procedure to repair the fractures in both his left and right wrists.
He stayed in the hospital for another week and was then transferred to
rehabilitation center for in-patient rehab. After the period of rehabilitation
was over, both of his wrists had to be casted. He is still completing
out-patient physical therapy for both his wrists and his leg. The total
amount of his medical expenses to date is in excess of $345,932. Additionally,
he missed an extensive amount of work hours costing him $5,600 in lost income.
