Domina Law Group's client, a young woman in her mid-20s, was horribly
hurt in a
motorcycle accident. The collision occurred at dusk while the client was a passenger with
her boyfriend on a Harley Davidson classic motorcycle. A light truck turned
left into the motorcycle’s path. Its driver and another witness
said the motorcycle’s headlights were not operating.
The motorcycle driver was seriously injured and could not offer useful
evidence. The injured passenger, represented by Domina Law Group, made
damaging statements about the headlight’s working condition immediately
after the collision.
Outstanding medical care dramatically reduced the injured lady’s
potential permanent adverse consequences, leaving Domina Law Group lawyers
with a case of questionable liability, substantial medical expenses, but
an attractive, largely recovered client.
To complicate matters, there was no doubt the injured passenger and her
boyfriend motorcyclist had consumed some alcohol before the collision.
There was no claim they were intoxicated, but the presence of alcohol
was beyond dispute.
Despite these circumstances, Domina Law Group lawyers persisted at discovery,
prepared for trial, and reached settlement on favorable terms.
