I was riding my Harley-Davidson motorcycle in Jackson Township, New Jersey, when the manually operated, thumbscrew cruise control device on the handlebars stuck, causing me to lose control of my motorcycle on a sharp curve on the roadway, and to strike head on into a tree on the side of the road. I spoke with more than twenty attorneys, and not a single one of them agreed to take my case, except for Mr. Meyers…” The result speaks for itself: a jury verdict in the amount of $9.9 million, in the Ocean County Superior Court in Toms River, New Jersey, the largest verdict in a products liability case in the entire State of New Jersey in 1997 (later settled on a confidential basis).

My injuries in an automobile accident in September of 2013 were so serious that it was necessary for emergency responders to use the ‘jaws of life’ to extract me from the front passenger seat of the vehicle I was riding in. To add insult to injury, I learned a short time later that, despite severe fractures to my right arm, leg, and knee, the available automobile insurance coverage was only $50,000, and the most I would be able to recover of that sum was $16,666. But I also had the good fortune of retaining G. Martin Meyers and his law office to represent me. As the result of Mr. Meyers’ creative analysis of my case, at least four other defendants were located. I learned I had products liability and negligence claims I never would have even known existed, if I had not retained Mr. Meyers to represent me. Mr. Meyers fought for my rights for almost four years. The result was the confidential settlement of my claims, and the ability to move on with my life secure in the knowledge that I had received the most highly professional, and highly competent legal representation available, from someone whose word I could always count on.

My entire life was turned upside down, literally and figuratively, when I was flipped over the handlebars of a mountain bike I was riding in September of 2006. I suffered a broken neck in that accident, which resulted in me being almost complete paralyzed from the neck down. Fortunately, I was referred to G. Martin Meyers who, after fully-analyzing my case, advised me that I might very well have been the victim of unreasonably dangerous defects in both the bicycle I had been riding, at the time of my accident, and the bicycle helmet I was wearing. Mr. Meyers filed a products liability action on my behalf which, after years of hard-fought litigation, resulted in confidential settlements that have enabled me and my family to move past this tragic incident in our lives. Mr. Meyers continues to pursue one aspect of my case, which did not settle, and his total commitment to obtaining the full measure of justice for myself, my wife, and our family continues to impress me.
