Comprehensive Overview of Adam’s Motorcycle Accident and Resulting Life Changes
Adam was commuting to his job when he lost control of his motorcycle due to an oil slick on the road. The accident resulted in him landing on his right knee, while also twisting his right ankle and shoulder. The crash aggravated a pre-existing arthritic condition in his right knee and ankle, worsening his overall health.
Unable to manage his original work duties due to his injuries, Adam resigned to seek lighter employment. He found a part-time position as a delivery driver, but this employment came to an end after just 10 weeks. Adam has since struggled to find suitable part-time or sedentary work that accommodates his physical limitations.
Complicating his situation, Adam developed a major depressive episode. This emotional toll is directly attributed to the chronic pain he experiences, along with the limitations in movement and function.
The case ultimately settled for $185,000, serving to compensate Adam for his physical injuries, loss of income, and emotional suffering.
