Settlement Reached Where Improper Road Repair Leads to Motorcycle Mishap

Comments Off

This month the City of Phoenix approved a $250,000 settlement in a motorcycle injury case with one of our clients. The incident occurred when the City workers improperly repaired a section of the roadway that, within days after the repair, resulted in a large pothole in a through lane of travel. Unfortunately, this pothole was also all but invisible at night and caused our client’s motorcycle to abruptly and unexpectedly lose control while traveling on the roadway. As a result, he was thrown to the pavement and received significant bodily and dental injuries.
