In the summer of 2006, the client was struck by a tractor trailer while driving a motorcycle in San Bernardino County. The collision left the client with a left leg injury. The client needed a personal injury attorney. Unfortunately, the client’s first attorney dropped the case once he realized the insurance company was unwilling to settle. A few days before the statute of limitation ran, the client came to the Law Offices of Ryan Harris. We listened to his story and knew that his case was righteous. The defendant claimed that our client was at fault for the collision. Because the client’s motorcycle was not insured at the time of the collision, he could not recover for his pain and suffering. The defendant also claimed that because the client did not have a motorcycle license, he should not have been on a motorcycle. We believed that the truck driver made an illegal lane change, and therefore, the trucking company was responsible for the collision and the client’s injuries and damages.
The personal injury attorneys at the Law Offices of Ryan Harris believed the client and believed in the case. One month prior to trial, when the defendant trucking company realized the Law Offices of Ryan Harris was prepared to try this most difficult case, the case settled for $500,000.00. A stark contrast to the defendant’s initial offer: $0.
