Man receives $1.5 million settlement after truck accident

Many people think of body cameras worn by police officers as part of a larger measure to hold officers accountable for conduct. While this is certainly a component of their use, in many cases they provide valuable evidence to establish liability, especially when officers respond to an injury accident. Body camera footage proved to be quite useful in helping a man receive a strong settlement after a truck struck him while he was riding a motorcycle.

While it is rare to think of an injury accident as having a happy ending, the victim was able to secure fair compensation after the incident, in large part due to the footage from responding officer's body cameras. The footage clearly showed the man injured and in serious agony while being loaded onto the ambulance.

Ultimately, the primary insurer and a secondary insurer assumed responsibility and agreed to pay the man $1.5 million as a settlement. The man, who suffered a severely broken ankle and remains partially disabled says that the settlement was acceptable, and he does plan to get back out on the road and ride again at some point.

Realistically, these events unfolded the way that one would expect after suffering an injury and obtaining strong legal guidance. Of course, it is doubtful that the man would have received the settlement that he did without professional help.

If you have suffered an injury in an accident, you should not hesitate to reach out to an experienced attorney who can help you fight for fair compensation. Without proper legal guidance from a strong advocate who understands how to use the law to fight for your rights and fair treatment, you may not receive all of what you deserve.
