Attorney Douglas Mahoney describes how he and Attorney Bob Sheldon won what remains the largest jury verdict for a motorcycle accident in Connecticut.

It was a $2.1 million judgment on behalf of a man who was hit by a bus while riding his motorcycle home from work as a mechanic. The bus made a left-hand turn in front of him and he sustained very significant injuries, including brain injuries and various fractures. It was a very, very hard case because it took such a toll on him.

We felt a great deal of responsibility to make sure that he got the best service he could and the best representation he could because he was never going to be able to work again as a result of his injuries. So we hired the former chief accident investigator for the Philadelphia Police Department to reconstruct the accident and prove that it was not our client’s fault.

We also put together his medical picture and arranged for the emergency room surgeon, his orthopedist, and his neurologist to come into court to testify as to his injuries. We sent him for an evaluation by a neuropsychologist at Yale to evaluate his brain function. We really felt we owed it to him to use whatever resources we had to prove his case.

After a three-week trial, a jury found the bus company completely at fault for the accident. It was one of the more rewarding cases I’ve pursued, because when you try a case for a client you put everything you have into it and you frequently develop a strong bond with those clients. It’s something that doesn’t end with the verdict.
