$50,000 Michigan Woman Injured in California Motorcycle Accident

0 Comment

Michigan Motorcyclist Injured in California Motorcycle Accident $50,000 Michigan Woman Injured in California Motorcycle AccidentA motorcycle passenger lawsuit was recently settled by our Michigan motorcycle lawyers in the amount of $50,000.00.  The lawsuit arose out of a Southern California motorcycle accident in which our client was riding as a bike passenger.  Her companion was driving the motorcycle when he failed to control the bike and struck another vehicle on the road.  As a result, our passenger client was thrown from the bike and suffered multiple serious injuries.

Our client is from New Boston, Michigan.  She was traveling on vacation in Los Angeles, California.  Even though the motorcycle accident took place in California because she is a resident of Michigan she was entitled to make a claim for no-fault insurance benefits as well as collect payment for her pain and suffering damages.  However, the motorcyclist’s insurance company did refuse to pay a pain and suffering settlement.  Therefore, our Michigan motorcycle lawyers filed a lawsuit on her behalf.

Her injuries in the accident were internal and included a broken clavicle, fractured ribs and a pneumothorax that required four days of hospitalization at the UCLA Medical Center.   She was immediately transferred by EMS to the emergency department at the scene of the crash for treatment.  She was released and returned back to Michigan where she is being treated by an orthopedic surgeon.

Shortly after our motorcycle lawyers filed the injury lawsuit, the insurance company agreed to pay a settlement out of court.  The $50,000.00 settlement we were able to help her attain for her injuries did not include the payment of her lost wages and medical expenses.  Those expenses were previously paid by her own insurance company.

Motorcyclist victims, both drivers and passengers, who are Michigan residents and injured in an out of state motorcycle accident do have legal rights.  Our Michigan motorcycle lawyers frequently represent bikers who have been involved in a crash while traveling out of state.  These types of lawsuits however can be quite confusing and complex and often require the help of an experienced motorcycle attorney who has the knowledge and expertise in handling such claims.
