Fatal Southeast Michigan Motorcycle Accident Kills Two Bikers And Seriously Injures Others

0 Comment

Our motorcycle accident Buckfire lawyers recently came across a story in the news about a fatal Southeast Michigan accident that left two bikers dead and two other people injured.  The accident that took place on Friday, August 17th at 11:00 P.M. in Clinton Township involved three motorcycles and three other vehicles.  The fatal Michigan accident killed a 58-year-old man, the driver of one bike involved, his passenger, a 47-year-old woman, and seriously injured another biker.  A car passenger involved in the accident also suffered injuries in the crash.  According to police, an SUV rear-ended the last of the motorcycles that were traveling together along the road. Police are asking for help from anyone who may have witnessed the accident.

I am very sorry to hear about this fatal crash. My condolences go out to the family of the deceased motorcyclists and hope the individuals injured have a fast recovery without any permanent damages.

Our Michigan hit and run accident attorneys are participating in the Hit and Run Reward Program created to assist police authorities in identifying drivers that cause injuries so that they can face the legal penalties imposed for their criminal actions. Our Michigan auto accident attorneys choose to participate knowing this program will help bring justice to victims of hit and run accidents and their families.

The Hit and Run Reward Program allows a person who has witnessed a hit and run to report the accident and offender anonymously and in return be awarded a reward if there is an arrest or felony charge. To create such a program, our law firm has teamed up with We Tip to provide an effective, anonymous hit and run reporting system. If you witness a hit and run, call (800-644-8678). When calling the number you will be asked if you would like to receive a reward if there is an arrest and felony conviction. Rewards of up to $1,000 can be given out.

As a resource to our clients, our Buckfire Law attorneys advise victims of their legal rights. For this fatal Southeast Michigan motorcycle accident, the families of the deceased victims may be able to make a claim for Survivor Loss Benefits. This can include payment of funeral expenses and loss of other services.

In addition, the family members of the deceased victims may also have a claim for a Michigan wrongful death lawsuit against the driver of the vehicle if found and determined to be at fault.

The individual seriously injured in the accident can submit a claim for Michigan No-Fault insurance benefits. No-Fault benefits will cover their medical expenses, lost wages, attendant care, replacement services, and other benefits related to injuries suffered in the accident. The injured victims can claim these benefits even if they did not have a Michigan automobile insurance policy.

In addition, the injured victim may also have claims for personal injuries against the driver determined to be at fault and if found. The insurance company for the negligent driver typically pays a settlement for this type of case.

At the very least, an experienced Michigan motorcycle accident lawyer should be contacted by all parties to discuss legal rights.
