Motorcycle Attorneys Settle Lawsuit Against Car Turning Into Lane of Motorcyclist

0 Comment

Our biker injury attorneys at Buckfire & Buckfire, P.C. recently settled a lawsuit on behalf of our client who was hit by another vehicle while riding his motorcycle. Our client suffered serious injuries in the motorcycle accident, including a herniated disc at C5-6; herniated disc at L4-L5; left L5 radiculopathy; and coccygodynia.

The crash took place on Orchard Lake Road.  Our client was riding in the curb lane when an operator of another vehicle traveling next to him in the thru lane hit him while attempting to change into his lane.

Although the public often thinks that bikers are responsible for motorcycle accidents, statistics show that most motorcycle accident injuries in Michigan are caused by the negligence of another driver. An often-overlooked fact is that the other drivers either fail to respect or pay attention to motorcycles. The results in a wide variety of car-motorcycle and truck-motorcycle accidents, including:

  • Cars rear-ending motorcycles
  • Cars or trucks failing to signal before changing lanes
  • Other vehicles making a right turn from the center lane and failing to see a motorcycle to their right
  • Trucks or cars forcing motorcycles into a guard rail
  • Drivers running a red light or stop sign without seeing the motorcycle

 The lawsuit settled for $75,000.  The injured motorcyclist was treated with injections for his injuries.

 Bikers hit by another vehicle do have legal rights and should contact an experience motorcycle accident attorney immediately to discuss their rights.  Our expert Michigan biker injury lawyers have significant experience in these types of cases and have a track record of obtaining sizeable settlements for our injured client. We can do the same for you. Call today at (800) 606-1717.
