Plaintiff was riding a motorcycle when he was struck by the defendant and knocked from the motorcycle. He suffered a fractured clavicle, wrist and thumb.

After extensive care, he made a good recovery from most of his injuries. He was left with some limitation of flexion in his wrist and some restricted motion in his thumb.

Total coverage was $250,000 with the liability carrier, AIG, having $25,000 and the underinsured motorist carrier, Liberty Mutual, having $250,000. Experts differed on the nature and extent of the restriction in motion and permanence of any injury.
