Overcoming the palpable bias against injured motorcycle enthusiasts and the efforts of defense attorneys and insurance companies to shield their clients from full accountability, Stewart Casper successfully negotiated a $2.1 million settlement on behalf of Martin (age 52) and Annette Sabba (age 57) in a case pending in U.S. District Court for the District of Connecticut. The Sabbas were returning from an excursion in the bucolic hills of Litchfield County when 17-year-old Matthew Pambianchi made a sudden left turn in their path, catapulting driver and passenger to the pavement. Mr. Sabba’s medical expenses currently exceed $250,000 and include extensive hospitalizations within a six month period. He underwent two surgeries to reconstruct his wrists and four surgeries to address a lacerated liver, abdominal infection, and removal of his gall bladder, all of which were caused by the impact. He continues to have ongoing pain and limited range of motion in both hands and wrists, which significantly limit his physical activity. Mrs. Sabba sustained a tri-malleolar fracture of her right ankle, requiring surgery with internal fixation. The hardware was later removed. She also sustained three fractured ribs and a concussion. Her medical expenses were approximately $40,000. The settlement was achieved after lawyers for Casper & de Toledo obliterated the defense claim that Mr. Sabba was comparatively negligent and uncovering previously undisclosed insurance coverage.
