Passenger Settlement For Kalamazoo Motorcycle Accident

0 Comment

The attorneys at Buckfire & Buckfire, P.C. recently settled a lawsuit on behalf of woman passenger injured in a Kalamazoo motorcycle accident.  She suffered serious injuries, including a leg fracture.  Her leg fracture required surgery which unfortunately did not heal well and caused her course of recovery to be much more difficult.

The lawsuit was filed against the insurance company of the negligent driver that caused the crash and hit our client.  Our client was riding as a passenger on a motorcycle at the time of the collision.  The driver turned in front of the motorcycle and struck the bike.   The negligent driver had an insurance coverage of up to $100,000.  Our expert Buckfire & Buckfire, P.C. attorneys were able to settle the lawsuit before even going to court for $75,000.

Although the public often thinks that bikers are responsible for motorcycle accidents, statistics prove that most of these collision are due to the negligence of another motor vehicle driver.  Some interesting facts and common causes of these types of accidents include:

  • More than half of fatal motorcycle crashes happen when the other vehicle turns left
  • 75% of all biker accidents happen when a vehicle fails to see the motorcycle before the collision
  • Trucks or cars forcing motorcyclists into a guard rail
  • Speeding by the vehicle driver
