Earlier this month a California jury awarded David Allen a $1.85 Million verdict for his 2007 motorcycle accident involving a beer truck. On the surface it may seem like a lot of money but when you consider extensive personal injury, surgeries and a lifetime of medical care, that doesn’t even come close to getting his life back to normal.
The accident happened as a beer truck, from the Bottomly Distributing Company was attempting to make a U-turn in the middle of a busy residential street. The truck driver waived the car behind him to go around his vehicle and into the oncoming lane of traffic, where unfortunately, Mr. Allen was driving his motorcycle. He was struck head on and sustained massive injuries.
The California jury concluded that Bottomly Distributing Company caused the accident by negligently and carelessly waiving the driver into the opposite lanes of traffic, and the driver’s actions were 100% responsible for the Mr. Allen’s injuries.The company denied liability and offered a small settlement.
