My Name is Joe Morelli of the Law Offices of Mark E.Salomone & Morelli in Hartford Connecticut. We are a personal injury law firm handling injury cases throughout the state of Connecticut. I"d like to tell you about a case we handled just recently last year about a motorcycle passenger who was involved in a very sever accident.
Motorcycle Accident Case
Female Motorcycle Passenger
Severe Tissue Loss
She was a passenger who boarded the motorcycle in Meridian. Her driver was a friend of hers who then proceeded up 91 north though Middle Town and eventually Rocky Hill. As part of our exhaustive investigation we discovered there was a handlebar mounted camera on the motorcycle. Based on our extensive experience handling motorcycle cases we always perform a thorough investigation including a reconstruction of the events leading up to the crash. Like solving a puzzle we piece together the most minute of details of the actions of each car truck and motorcycle to create a foundation for maximum recovery.
It was though this analysis that we determined that the motorcycle did in fact have a mounted camera. That had recorded the entire trip and it"s fatal consequences. We immediately moved to secure an exact copy of the accident video. We could not have come up with a more key piece of evidence to tie in all of the insurance companies. We discovered it had been activated just before the accident and it showed in real time what happened. The operator of the motorcycle was racing four other motorcycles at speeds in excess of 160 miles per hour.
This fatal accident was devastating and our client suffered severe injuries to her upper body. She was fortunate and it was miraculous that she wasn"t killed. She had some soft tissue injuries to her neck area, had some damage to her ribs, primarily though she sustained massive tissue loss from her upper arm. Major pieces of muscle pieces of her upper arm were missing or destroyed. Multiple reconstructive surgeries were required to regain some use of her arm.
As you can see from the break lights, the heavy traffic was unexpectedly slowing. By analyzing the actions of all veihicles we aggressivly persued each insurance company to obtain a substantial total recovery for our client from each available insurance policy.
Apon approaching the insurance companies they agreed with us that this was a very significant case. And we were able to obtain a policy limit recovery consistent with such a catastrophic loss. The client was very pleased that we were able to get a prompt resolution to this case and it was though our efforts in obtaining both the DVD and all of her medical records, making sure she obtained the doctors she needed to go to that we were able to obtain a successful result.
She was pleased and we were very pleased on her behalf.
