0 Comment

The fatal motorcycle accident attorneys at Buckfire & Buckfire, P.C. recently settled a Kalamazoo County motorcycle accident settlement on behalf of the family of a motorcyclist killed in a car accident.  The lawsuit was filed against the negligent driver’s auto insurance company and due to our expert negotiations settled for the insurance policy limits of $100,000.

The motorcyclist, age 55, suffered a fractured leg in the fatal crash and underwent surgery for the orthopedic fracture injury. He died two days following the accident after his condition worsened and while recovering from the surgery and other medical conditions.

The fatal Kalamazoo County motorcycle accident occurred when a teenage driver carelessly pulled away from stop sign into the path of the motorcyclist. He was ticketed by police for the accident.  We were able to negotiate the settlement with the insurance company.  It was determined that there were not collectible assets above and beyond the insurance policy limits.  The settlement proceeds will be distributed to his surviving family members.
