Riddle & Brantley Secures $2.9 Million Settlement in Motorcycle Accident Case
Riddle & Brantley attorneys Darren Dawson and Gene Riddle secured $2.9 million in total compensation for the victim of a motorcycle accident (see disclaimer below). Dawson’s client was riding a motorcycle when he was hit by a passenger vehicle, suffering serious injuries including a spinal cord injury, a leg injury, and internal injuries. Significant treatment involved a partial foot amputation and spinal fusion, with medical expenses totaling over $400,000.
“One of the rewards in practicing law is to represent a client who truly appreciates the hard work and preparation that went into his case,” said Dawson. “Although suffering from life-long injuries, it is satisfying to know that financially our client is now in a better position to overcome his hardships.”
“It was a pleasure to bring him some measure of justice in this case.”

Making the Case
In addition to proving liability on the part of the defendant, Riddle & Brantley attorneys also produced a “day in the life” video documenting how the accident has impacted the injured victim’s quality of life, including difficulties experienced performing everyday tasks. Attorney Dawson also worked with outside experts to develop a comprehensive life care plan which forecasts future medical expenses. Following these extensive efforts, Riddle & Brantley attorneys secured $2,900,000 in compensation at mediation with defense counsel.
