Monroe County Motorcycle Accident

0 Comment

The Monroe County Sheriff’s Department is investigating a Monroe County Motorcycle Accident that caused the death of Hollis W. Hurst, from Maybee, Michigan.  The accident occurred just before 8:00 p.m. when he was struck by a 1996 Pontiac driven by a 17 year old.  Fortunately, alcohol does not appear to be a factor in the crash.  Mr. Hollis was wearing a helmet at the time of the accident.

I am sorry that this tragic accident occurred.  It is important that victims of motorcycle accidents be aware of their legal rights.  Mr. Hollis’ family may have a claim for Michigan No-Fault Insurance Benefits as a result this accident.  This will depend on the type of insurance that he purchased for his motorcycle.  If he did have the proper insurance, it would pay for funeral expenses, lost wages for three years, replacement services for three years, and perhaps some other benefits.  If the police investigation determines that the driver of the Pontiac was at fault for the accident, the family of Mr. Hollis may have a wrongful death lawsuit against that driver.  Typically, a claim against the driver and the owner of the car is made against the insurance companies.
