The Story of a Devastating Motorcycle Accident: How Crandall & Pera Law’s Steve Crandall Achieved a $3.75M Settlement for Our Client

On Behalf of | Feb 27, 2023 | Firm News

Steve recently represented a 28-year-old man who had been injured in a devastating motorcycle accident. The man was married, had a young child, and was gainfully employed in the restaurant industry before the accident. However, all of this changed when a commercial HVAC van negligently turned left in front of him, causing a collision that would change his life forever.

At first, it appeared that our client had suffered only from fractures and orthopedic injuries. However, as we dug deeper into his condition, we reviewed MRI images with highly trained medical experts and it was determined that he had sustained significant brain damage from the impact. This brain injury was not detected by the hospital he was taken to directly from the crash that led to his injuries.  This brain damage affected him in profound ways, including his mood, attention span, cognitive function, and overall ability to function in his daily life. He was also severely depressed, had anxiety, and his interpersonal and work relationships suffered.  He was quite literally a completely different person.

The company we were going up against attempted to hide the amount of insurance they had to pay for their negligence. However, we were determined to uncover the truth, and through extensive litigation, depositions, and the use of various experts, we were able to determine the amount of insurance and secure a settlement of $3.75M for our client and his family.

This settlement provided our client with the financial stability he needed due to his loss of income from not being able to work, as well as future financial investments and cutting-edge medical therapies designed to help lessen the impact of his brain injury.
