While riding his motorcycle to work on July 9, 2001, our client, a 53-year-old construction worker, was struck from behind in Busti, New York. As a result, he suffered lower back disc herniations. The insurance company’s attorney argued that our client pulled out in front of an oncoming vehicle, causing his own injuries. Attorneys John P. Comerford and Neil J. McKinnon presented the testimony of an accident reconstructionist, who made it very clear that the damage was the result of the action of the vehicle crashing into our client from behind. When the heavily damaged motorcycle was displayed to the jury, the defendant’s insurance company offered a large settlement nearly equivalent to the full amount of the policy covering the defendant’s vehicle.
