GJEL Accident Attorneys’ client in this case was traveling eastward on his motorcycle and approaching an intersection when a northward-traveling car turned left in front of him at that very intersection resulting in a motorcycle accident. The client was unable to stop his motorcycle in such a short time. When the car struck him, he was ejected from his motorcycle and suffered serious knee injuries that prevented him from returning to his work and hobby activities.

The defendant in this case was the driver of the car that turned in front of the client. Investigating officers determined that the defendant was the cause of this accident and cited her for making an improper left hand turn.

By working with expert orthopedic surgeons, including the plaintiff’s treating surgeon at Kaiser, GJEL Accident Attorneys was able to show that in addition to the two surgeries the client already had, he was likely to need a third surgery and the resulting permanent disability would prevent him from doing his work as a field biologist for USGS. GJEL Accident Attorneys recovered $400,000 to pay for the client’s injuries.
