Murray & Murray Convinces Insurer to Pay Policy Limits to Injured Motorcyclist

August 12, 2015

(SANDUSKY, Ohio) – Murray & Murray recently won a settlement on behalf of a motorcyclist, Michael Fantozzi, who was severely injured in a Sandusky collision caused by a negligent driver, Akeela Mayfield, in the spring of 2014.  Murray & Murray partner Florence J. Murray represented Mr. Fantozzi.

The collision occurred at a two-way stop, where the motorcyclist had the right of way.  The defendant stopped briefly and then proceeded through the intersection, never seeing the motorcyclist.  The defendant’s vehicle struck the motorcycle, throwing its rider several feet and causing severe lacerations and head injuries.  The defendant’s insurance company disputed the severity of the motorcyclist’s injuries.  However, Mr. Fantozzi, a union machinist, was unable to return to work or to his full life activities for nearly a year.

Florence fought hard to prove the extent of the client’s injuries to the insurance company.  The firm arranged for proper neurological care and diagnosis for the injured client, and then Florence successfully used these records, and the client’s testimony, to negotiate a settlement for the client without the need for a lengthy trial.  Florence obtained a settlement for the full value of the defendant’s policy limits.
