Motorcycle v. Left-Turning Auto

We recovered this settlement on behalf of a motorcyclist who was forced to “lay down” her cycle in the face of a left-turning BMW. The defendant BMW operator had turned left in front of the plaintiff to enter a garage located midblock. His view of oncoming traffic was obscured by a stopped MUNI bus. He claimed that he had “inched out” so as to avoid contact with any oncoming vehicles. She sustained multiple fractures and intraabdominal injuries, incurring medical bills in excess of $150,000.
