Orlando Negligent Failure to Maintain Roadway Settlement
Year: 2009 / Amount: $3,750,000.00
Vaughan Law Group’s (VLG’s) client was exiting the interstate while safely operating his motorcycle. This particular exit ramp was within the zone of a large D.O.T. (Department of Transportation) project. DOT awarded a contract to a large nationwide contractor. Failure by that contractor to monitor and maintain the ramp (which had daily amounts of dirt and debris dumped on it by dump trucks) led to the motorcycle’s loss of traction. Consequently, the clients motorcycle slid out from under him causing him to skid and subsequently slam into a parked vehicle. Following several surgical procedures, the client developed incomplete quadriplegia. As a result, the client’s spouse had to quit her job to become a full time caretaker for her husband. This case was vigorously defended by both the contractor and the other defendant, a local municipality. Legal and medical causation defenses were asserted.The client’s case had a significant obstacle to overcome; that being the client’s symptoms did not get noted in any medical records for approx 6 months after the accident. After several years of litigation the case was resolved after mediation and prior to trial for $3.75 Million prior to trial. (10th Judicial Circuit).
