Motorcycle Accident Leaves Car Driver Unhurt | Michigan Motorcycle Accident Lawyers

0 Comment

A fatal motorcycle accident has resulted in the death of the motorcyclist.  Michael Boyd, of Ona, was killed during the early morning hours of February 13, 2009 when he was rear-ended by a car.  The car struck the motorcycle with enough force that Michael Boyd was thrown off the bike and eventually had to be airlifted to a hospital, where unfortunately medical efforts were not able to save him.  Neither the driver of the car nor a passenger in the car were hurt.  The police took a toxicology sample from the driver and are waiting on its results.

I am always saddened to hear about accidents like this one.  Unfortunately, when there is an accident involving a car and a motorcycle, the results are too often the same as in this accident: the motorcyclist killed or severely injured while the occupants of the car are fine.  Here, the tragedy is compounded because it is possible the driver of the car was drunk when this accident occurred.  I am very sorry for the Boyd family’s loss.

When an accident like this happens in Michigan, the motorcyclist’s family can usually make a number of claims.  First, because the accident involved a car, they can make a claim for Michigan No Fault survivor loss benefits.  Second, they may be able to sue the driver of the car.  Whether they can win this lawsuit will depend on who caused the accident.  Finally, when the driver of the car is drunk, the family may be able to sue the bar or restaurant that served the driver alcohol.
