Detroit Motorcycle Accident

0 Comment

A Detroit motorcycle accident that occurred after a high-speed chase has ended with the deaths of the motorcyclist and a pedestrian.  On November 4, 2008, a Michigan State Police trooper attempted to pull over a motorcyclist for a traffic violation near East Davison and Conant.  The motorcyclist slowed down when the trooper turned on the emergency lights but then sped up to a high rate of speed and struck a pedestrian that was crossing the street at a traffic light, which the motorcyclist ran.  Both were killed.

This is a completely senseless accident and there was no reason for it to occur.  A traffic ticket is simply not worth it.  I feel very bad for both of the families involved.

The pedestrian’s family can very likely sue the motorcyclist’s estate for wrongful death.  They may also be able to submit claims to various insurance companies, such as a life insurance company.  Similarly, the motorcyclist may have had motorcycle insurance or life insurance that his family could submit a claim to.  Both families should consult with a lawyer in the near future to ensure they are collecting the full amount of benefits and to determine what options they have in this unfortunate situation.
