Scott was the driver of a 2003 Honda Shadow Spirit motorcycle, traveling westbound on Colorado 6 at the intersection of Arrow Grass Road. A 17-year-old was driving a 2000 Jeep Grand Cherokee south on Arrow Grass Road and had stopped at the stop sign at Colorado 6. The 17-year-old failed to keep a proper lookout and entered the intersection in front of Scott, causing a serious collision. Scott skidded nearly 100 feet and the motorcycle rolled before it collided with the left side of the 17-year-old's Jeep. An accident investigation specialist on-scene noted that Scott's motorcycle was traveling between 35 to 40 miles per hour at the time of the collision. He noted that Scott likely hit his head on the ground as his motorcycle rolled causing a serious closed head injury, and his ankle was badly fractured by the impact with the Jeep.
After the collision, Scott retained the law firm of Bachus & Schanker, LLC to help him with his claim. Through investigation, Bachus & Schanker, LLC learned that the 17 year-old did not have enough insurance to compensate Scott for the severe injuries he sustained in the collision. Therefore, Bachus & Schanker, LLC made a claim against Scott's underinsured motorist coverage. Scott received medical treatment for over one year after the collision and his medical bills totaled more than $700,000.00. After Scott's medical condition stabilized, Darin Schanker, a Bachus & Schanker, LLC founding partner, submitted a settlement demand letter to Scott's insurance company. The parties were able to negotiate a settlement amount that will help take care of Scott's medical needs, wage loss and pain and suffering now and into the future. The amount of the settlement is confidential.
