$1 Million verdict for Motorcycle Collision

Mr. Newton is a husband and father of three from Rocklin, CA. While riding his motorcycle in Downtown Sacramento, Mr. Newton struck a Comcast Cable van which had veered into his lane. He went to the emergency room in pain with an injured leg and arm. His pain persisted, forcing him to modify his activities. HIs participation in martial arts, community service and even the care of his children was painful. His previously active lifestyle withered. MRI and X-ray Imaging revealed a lower back disc injury which would require therapy, considerable medical treatment and painful surgery. While Comcast accepted liability for the collision and for the back injury, the extent of the injury was disputed. Attorneys Jason Sigel and Catia Saraiva brought the case to trial and presented evidence and testimony from witnesses, including five medical experts. After an eight day trial the jury awarded Mr. Newton a verdict of $1.086 Million.
