Sevenish Law Firm, P.C. Secures Major Award for Client Who Suffered Devastating Leg, Foot Injuries
INDIANAPOLIS, INDIANA, MONTH DD, YYYY — Sevenish Law Firm, P.C. recently secured a 4.5-million-dollar settlement on behalf of a client who suffered devastating leg and foot injuries in a July 4, 2020 motorcycle accident. A pickup truck struck his client after coming into his lane, striking him and causing wounds that forever changed his life.
Before the accident, Mr. Randy Sevenish’s client, VS, was a skilled auto mechanic who loved to fix cars and motorcycles. He was also an avid lover of the outdoors. He always stayed active, friends say, and enjoyed mountain biking, hiking, indoor rock climbing, and other activities. He also spent time riding motorcycles. He enjoyed the feeling of freedom he felt while riding on two wheels.
All that changed on a summer day on July 4, when a pickup truck entered VS’s lane, striking him and his girlfriend while they were on a motorcycle. VS felt extreme pain as he says the collision “snapped my bones and blew my muscles up.”
Client Endures Extensive Surgeries, Painful Recovery After Collision
VS suffered devastating soft tissue and bone fracture injuries to his left leg and foot, requiring multiple surgeries and procedures over a month. He also sustained scars on his left arm from the impact he suffered when the truck hit him.
He endured ten leg and foot surgeries, including orthopedic surgeries and plastic surgeries, between July 5, 2020 and Sept. 8, 2021, and 24 leg, foot, arm debridement, and wound care procedures between July 5, 2020 and Dec. 23, 2020.
In the two years since the accident, VS has not been able to work as a master technician or return to the activities that brought him joy. So much has changed for him and his family. He lives with chronic pain, takes medications, and manages physical limitations that make it hard for him to live as he did before.

Settlement to Help With Current, Future Medical Needs
The $4.5 million settlement that Sevenish Law Firm, P.C. recovered will help with multiple accident damages, including VS’s lost income, lost fringe benefits, future medical needs, lost household services, and other damages.
After an independent medical professional evaluated the client for functional capacity as a mechanic, he determined that VS could not achieve his functional job demands in that role, especially when it involves standing for long periods.
His level of impairment is less than 50 percent, meaning he has trouble with balance, walks at a slower standard pace with a limp, and struggles with repetitive kneeling, sustained squatting, above shoulder reaching, and walking. He also lives with scarring, disfigurements, motor loss in his toes, ankle and foot nerve pain, and many other long-term ailments expected to affect his quality of life.
