The Cincinnati Ohio auto accident attorneys at Wright & Schulte LLC have secured a confidential accident settlement, without going through lengthy litigation, for an Ohio man who suffered severe bodily injury after he was allegedly struck by a vehicle and ejected from the motorcycle upon which he was traveling.
According to accident settlement investigations by Wright & Schulte LLC on behalf of the motorcycle accident victim, on October 18, 2010, a driver collided with the victim while attempting a turn. The collision ejected the victim from his motorcycle, allegedly causing severe bodily injury. The victim was transported by ambulance on a backboard and in a c-collar to a local hospital. An examination revealed an open laceration on his right knee, with effusion of the right knee joint. In pain and unable to bear weight on the right knee, the victim entered surgery and remained at the hospital until October 20, 2010.
When the victim had the staples from his surgery removed on November 4, his physicians noted pitting edema around the knee and lower extremity and superficial dehiscence, as well as complaints of pain. The victim began physical therapy on December 17, 2010. By March 1, 2011 the victim was still suffering from pain and a limp.
Because of his injuries, the motorcycle accident victim was let go by his employer because he was unable to perform his duties. The victim’s wife also lost two weeks of wages while caring for her husband.
The Cincinnati motorcycle accident attorneys at Wright & Schulte LLC were able to secure a confidential settlement by the alleged negligent party for the victim to compensate him for lost wages, medical expenses, as well as the for his pain and suffering and for the disruption the accident and resulting injuries caused to his life.
