Seattle, WA (PRWEB) October 22, 2009
Seattle Injury Attorney Kirk Bernard, founding partner of The Bernard Law Group, is pleased to announce that partner and personal injury attorney Elizabeth Lindquist, recently reached a settlement at mediation in September 2009 for $425,500.00 in a Washington motorcycle accident injury case. The female plaintiff from Puyallup represented by Ms. Lindquist sustained serious injuries as a passenger on the back of a motorcycle which was hit by a car that drove past a stop sign and pulled into an intersection and directly into the path of the motorcycle. This settlement for the plaintiff was achieved to assist with the medical costs of a burst fracture of the injured woman's lower back at L1 that required surgical fusion of her spine with insertion of a cage and bone grafting. The motorcycle passenger also endured the pain and suffering of a pelvic fracture and multiple rib fractures in the accident that was caused by the car leaving the stop sign.
This particular motorcycle injury settlement of $425,500.00 is representative of Ms. Lindquist's dedicated work ethic and extensive legal acumen in the arena of personal injury litigation. Since being asked by Kirk Bernard in 1998 to join the Bernard Law Group, Ms. Lindquist has successfully negotiated settlements amounting to over four million dollars for injured victims of motorcycle accidents, pedestrian accidents, bicycle accidents, defective products, and even unsafe premises. Her commitment to injury litigation goes even further, as illustrated by her work advocating for investments for injured children's' settlement funds, including structured settlements, special needs trusts, and Guaranteed Education Tuition Plans for pre-paid college education.
Ms. Lindquist's successful achievements and wide-ranging legal skills are a priceless asset to the Bernard Law Group, an experienced and aggressive Seattle personal injury law firm devoted solely to representing accident and injury victims.
