$5 Million Settlement to Motorcycle Driver Hit from Behind by 18-Wheeler
Our client was driving his motorcycle on a 2-lane road when a commercial truck, an 18-wheeler, hit him from behind. One of his legs was crushed, and although he was wearing a helmet, he suffered a head injury. He lay in a coma as doctors performed surgery on his leg. When he awoke, his found out that his leg had been amputated above the knee.
Our client had to learn to walk with a prosthetic leg. He had lost his job and any way of paying for medical bills. He found this website, contacted our law firm and hired attorney Eric Hageman.
Eric contacted the hospital and insurance companies, explaining the situation and the need to postpone payment of medical expenses, while still getting the needed prosthetic leg. Eric inspected the motorcycle and the truck involved, hired an accident reconstruction specialist, and presented a solid case that the truck driver was at fault and that the transportation company needed to pay a multi-million-dollar settlement to our client, which the company did.
You can get Eric on your side. Contact him using our free consulation form and tell him you need his help. He often responds within minutes.
The Truck Company May Deny Fault
In almost all of our cases, the truck driver and transportation company initially deny fault. They have a team of lawyers on their side, and they like to flex muscle. Attorney Eric Hageman, who won over $30 million for one client, can not be intimidated. One client referred to him as a warrior.
“I know the games the other side may play to try avoid responsibility,” said Eric. “I use facts and analysis to prove my cases.”
