Motorcycle Accident Victim Received $31.5 Million in Lawsuit against State of California

Following one of several serious injury motorcycle accidents occurring on California State Route 138, a jury recently awarded one victim $31.5 million in a verdict against California's state agency responsible for rail, bridge, and highway transportation construction, planning, and maintenance (Caltrans).

Caltrans was held responsible for what was determined to be a dangerous roadway condition.

On April 29, 2009, David Evans was riding his motorcycle when he collided with an oncoming vehicle. The collision left Mr. Evans with severe spinal cord and brain injuries that will require around-the-clock nursing assistance for the remainder of his life.

California Highway Patrol (CHP) documents showed that ten previous accidents had occurred at this location. The handling attorneys were able to convince the jury that Caltrans failed to provide sufficient protection for their client in an area that had been flagged for being especially dangerous.

According to the 2009 California Statewide Integrated Traffic Records System (SWITRS), 232,777 people were injured and 3,076 suffered fatal injuries in California auto collisions. Of those injured, 13,083 were pedestrians, 12,043 were bicyclists, and 10,479 were traveling on motorcycles.

Brian Chase, California motorcycle attorney and lifelong motorcycle enthusiast, has assisted dozens of motorcycle accident and dangerous roadway condition victims. "Too often, California's transportation agencies are made aware of dangerous roadway conditions and fail to quickly address the issue. In Mr. Evans' case, Caltrans' Chief of Operations had received a complaint eighteen months prior to his Evans' collision. Had this complaint, or the several motor vehicle accidents which took place in the area, been treated with the respect that they deserved, the roadway could have been modified to help prevent Mr. Evans' collision.

"When Caltrans, or any other governmental agency, contributes to a dangerous condition, they put themselves in a position to be held liable. Luckily, Mr. Evans received a generous verdict which will allow him to receive the care he so desperately needs." Said Mr. Chase.

“Great people in this office, everyone was really helpful explaining everything. I was referred by my aunt for my car accident in October and the case went pretty fast. No problems and very professional. I was kept in the loop thru [sic] the whole process and was able to get a better settlement than my insurance company said I would. I cant really compare them to other law firms because it was the first time I had to use an attorney, but my bad experience with the car accident was handled as good as I could have hoped.”
