Representative Matters

Motorcycle/Big Rig

In the midst of a 2011 jury trial in nearby Solano County, Jacobson Markham attained a $5 million in-trial settlement at the close of the plaintiff’s case in a trial where its client sustained severe, lifelong injuries when a big rig turned left in front of her motorcycle.  Richard Jacobson and his trial team called five medical experts and used the latest jury trial medical animation to deliver its damages message, which finally resulted in the trucking company and its insurer paying its demand in full.

Off Road Motorcycle Verdict

Jacobson Markham represented the operator of a dirt bike who was injured while using on off road vehicle park in nearby Yuba County.  Our client was injured due to the reckless operation of another rider.  Despite attempts to settle the case within the other rider’s policy limit, Markham had to resort to trial to get his client compensated.  The jury fully compensated our client by awarding damages eleven times the policy limit and the judgment was satisfied.
