ORANGE COUNTY, Calif.
- June 8, 2016
-- Marcereau & Nazif, California's leading personal injury law firm, has announced that a settlement has been reached in the case of Korte v. Lebard & Underwood, which was pending in Orange County Superior Court. Marcereau & Nazif obtained $500,000 on behalf of their client, who was involved in a solo motorcycle accident. The plaintiff was riding his motorcycle in the Anaheim area when his front tire suddenly blew out, causing him to crash his motorcycle through a chain link fence at over 50 miles per hour. The plaintiff suffered serious injuries, inlcluding multiple broken bones. The tire blow-out occurred approximately one month after the plaintiff had his front wheel replaced. Marcereau & Nazif sued the defendant repair shop, alleging that they failed to properly inspect the tire. Marcereau & Nazif alleged that the tire had small, internal defects that caused the inner tube to explode. After a year-long battle, the defendant ultimately paid $500,000 to settle the case. Attorney Rob Marcereau stated: "We're very pleased with the result we obtained for our client. He and his family have gone through a lot because of this accident, and this money will go a long way toward helping them recover. Negligent maintenance is always a very difficult case to prove, but we investigated this case for over a year and turned over every rock. Ultimately, the defendant knew we had a strong case and they didn't want this to go before a jury."
