Negligent Entrustment – $625,000.00

A Marlborough, MA man received a $625,000.00 Judgment after having been injured in a motorcycle accident in 2006. This young man was injured when another motorcycle operated by a person, with limited driving experience and a poor driving history, caused the motorcycle crash. This person was also operating an uninsured and unregistered vehicle.

Suit was brought against the company that entrusted the motorcycle to this person. Initially, this case was decided in favor of the company by a Judge in the Superior Court. The case was appealed to the Massachusetts Appeals Court, where the Superior Court’s decision was overturned, ultimately resulting in a settlement of $625,000.00.

This case is a good example of how persistence and hard work can result in a successful outcome.
