0 Comment

Our Michigan motorcycle accident lawyers recently obtained a $5,000,000 damages award from a Lenawee County Circuit Court Judge.

At a court hearing on December 16, 2011, Lenawee County Circuit Court Judge entered a Judgment in the amount of five Million Dollars ($5,000,000.00) was against the driver of a Jeep that struck and caused catastrophic injuries a Michigan motorcyclist.

The Michigan motorcycle accident was caused by a drunk driver that occurred on August 31, 2008 on Michigan Avenue near North Adrian Avenue in Lenawee County.  The driver had a blood alcohol level of .34 and was criminally convicted for his crime.  He was sentenced to three years in jail for this offense and served his time.

The injured Michigan biker was a fifty-two year old telephone lineman and he sustained a catastrophic traumatic brain injury. He was comatose for a week and later admitted to the University of Michigan Hospital, where he remained until his discharge on September 19, 2008. During his admission the was seen by several specialists and was diagnosed with moderate to severe traumatic brain injury, displaced fracture left occipital condyle, right six to eight rib fractures, laceration right palm, contusion left side, left finger skin avulsion.

Tragically, our client has never recovered from these injuries.  He is now permanently incapacitated and cannot care for himself.  He requires twenty-four hour a day supervision and assistance with his basic daily needs.  He will never be able to return to work again.  The trial court judge listened carefully to damage testimony and awarded our client $5,000,000 at the conclusion of the hearing.
