CASE RESULTS

In addition to catastrophic injury cases (like the two traumatic brain injury cases I helped my clients A. R. and J. B. make $2.1 million and $4.75 million recoveries on respectively in 2014), I handle moderate and severe injury cases, a number of which settle for six figure amounts. If you or a family member is involved in a serious motor vehicle collision or a serious work accident and sustain moderate, severe or catastrophic injuries, please call my office for a free consultation with me to discuss the case and your legal remedies.

CASE RESULTS TO DATE

Injured Motorcyclist Awarded a $9.6 Million Verdict

On November 11, 2018, Joe S. was riding his motorcycle at a lawful rate of speed south bound on North Citrus Avenue in Crystal River, Florida and had the right of way.  A north bound sport utility vehicle turned left in front of Joe S. violating his right of way. Joe S. and his motorcycle slammed into the passenger side of the sport utility vehicle and he sustained severe facial lacerations and multiple fractures to his left arm and pelvis.  First – Responders called for Joe S. to be transported by Life Flight helicopter immediately to Ocala Regional Medical Center’s Level Two Trauma Center. Doctors and staff there saved Joe S.’s life and performed multiple surgeries on his face, left arm and pelvis.  After seven weeks in ORMC, Joe S.  was discharged home into the care of family members. His serious and permanent injuries, have had a profoundly adverse effect on his quality of life.

Ocala personal injury and motorcycle accident lawyer, Dan Hightower, filed a negligence lawsuit on behalf of his client, Joe S. in Citrus County, Florida in 2019. During the week of February 10, 2020, Mr. Hightower tried the case in Citrus County Circuit Court.  After the conclusion of the trial, a verdict was rendered by the Court in favor of Joe S.  and against the Defendant SUV driver for $9,661,232.98.

When asked for comment on the verdict, Mr. Hightower simply said two things:  1) “Justice was served” and 2) “Watch out for motorcycles.”
