Motorcyclist Undergoes Several Procedures Following Crash
Part II - Damages Presentation Highlights Recovered Amputation

Attorney Jenny Anglin, of the Simon Law Group, requested DK Global’s expertise regarding injuries her client sustained in a collision. The Defendant failed to yield the right of way as she proceeded to make a left turn. Unable to maneuver his motorcycle out of the way, the Plaintiff struck the passenger side of the Defendant’s vehicle. Our production team got to work creating a presentation which would provide the proper visual representation of the Plaintiff's horrific injuries.

The key to this animation was to show the jury that the injury was so severe it was considered a recovered amputation. Immediately the animation opens revealing an open wound laceration on the left ankle that is over 12 to 15 centimeters long. There is extensive soft tissue damage to the soleus and gastrocnemius muscle. Additionally, the Plaintiff had a lacerated posterior tibial tendon and a tibial and fibula distal shaft open fracture. Moving forward the animation demonstrates the necessary steps taken to retain the limb.

Hardware was required including an external fixator that later required compression and tubular plates. The external fixator was eventually removed, and a 3.55-millimeter compression plate was installed on the medial distal tibia. The fibula was also fixated with a tubular plate and bicortical screws. After the installation was completed, the external fixator was re-assembled and fit back into place. Damaged tissue was also removed, and the placement of a cement spacer was added. The hardware was later removed from the left tibia in addition to excision of infected bone from the left tibia and fibula. In a five-month period, the Plaintiff received seven different procedures to correct his injuries. With the completed animation in hand, Jenny and the team at Simon Law Group were able to secure a favorable amount for their client.

Attorney Anglin has achieved the honor of Super Lawyers after attaining a high-degree of peer recognition and professional achievement throughout her career. Located in Southern California, the Simon Law Group is led by brothers Robert and Brad. The firm has achieved great success and has won more than tens of millions in compensation for their clients.
