Case Facts: A 67-year-old motorcyclist who sustained a fractured sacrum, a torn bicep

physical therapy before being able to return to his full time employment
approximately eight months after the accident.
No lost wages were sustained and the settlement on the day before trial
was for pain and suffering only.
