Case Conclusion Date:January 3, 2007
Practice Area:Motorcycle Accident
Outcome:Defendant found 100% at fault
Description:Smith was driving his motorcycle when his protective glasses fell off. He decided to turn around to get them using a driveway. As he began to make his left turn into the driveway he was struck by another motorcyclist. The defendant's insurance company denied the claim stating that Smith was at fault in the collision. Damages were stipulated to. Because the defendant's insurance denied liability a jury had to force the insurance company to take responsibility. The jury stated that the defendant was 100% at fault.
