When Jerry Got In A Motorcycle Crash

All Jerry ever wanted was that motorcycle

This story is about a personal injury case, a motorcycle crash near Binghamton, NY. More importantly, it’s about a tragedy that no family should have to endure.

When Jerry headed out one warm summer morning, all he could think about was how happy he was to finally live the dream. He’d worked long and hard to save enough money to buy that motorcycle. And now he was finally going to enjoy it. It was his very first ride. And his last. We’ve all been there where you see something or someone come into your view on the road you hadn’t expected. When you’re driving your truck or car and PAYING ATTENTION to your driving, you can react properly and safely and continue on your way. Jerry was coming around the bend on a country road, within the speed limit and on his own side of the road.

The young man driving the truck near Binghamton, NY that morning had partied the night before and was overtired on his way to work. He was drinking his coffee when his cell phone text alarm went off. He was distracted long enough NOT to see what was just around the corner. It was Jerry, living his dream on his motorcycle on a morning when the sun had been shining and all was right with the world.

Our Binghamton, NY office got the call two weeks after the funeral. Anne, Jerry’s wife, could barely pull together the words. She didn’t know what to do. She’d stayed home and raised the kids while Jerry was the family’s financial provider. Hospital and funeral costs were beyond what they’d ever been able to save up enough to cover. It’s the same for most families. We told her, “We’ll do all we can, Anne, to get you and your family the Maximum Award possible. It’ll never bring him back,” we said. She knew that. “But at least we can help you take care of the scary expenses and get you and your kids enough cash to last without Jerry being with you.”

“All Jerry ever wanted was that motorcycle. He loved our boys and did everything for them and me. But that motorcycle was something he finally did for himself,” said Anne.

The Personal Injury Law Firm Only Gets Paid, When YOU Get Paid

It’s called a contingency fee. Personal injury lawyers only get paid when they win their clients’ case. Well, here at Stanley Law, it’s more plaid than pinstripes. More about doing the work that’s needed no matter what it takes. We understand the risks. And we explained them to Anne. We’re only paid, ever, when you get paid Anne. We’ll buy the same motorcycle Jerry was riding if it’s necessary, and break it down bit by bit to understand it. Every case is different. And no case is ever easy. Motorcycle cases are particularly tough.”
