Gill and Chamas has recovered multiple seven figure settlements for their clients who were injured in a motorcycle accident. One of these recoveries includes a $1.3 million settlement for a motorcyclist left with spinal injuries from a collision with an oncoming car. The case was settled in the midst of trial. The accident occurred in Colts Neck New Jersey. The plaintiff, then 46, was traveling east when an oncoming car tried to make a U-turn, crossed the double yellow line and struck the his motorcycle, says the plaintiffs’ motorcycle injury lawyer Raymond Gill Jr. of Gill and Chamas in Woodbridge.
According to Mr. Gill, the defendant tried to turn abruptly without signaling in an apparent attempted to avoid backed-up traffic. The impact threw the plaintiff off his motorcycle and into the air and knocked him unconscious. He broke his left ankle, fractured areas of his cervical and thoracic spine and spent months in a clam-shell brace.
