Rear End Michigan Motorcycle Accident Kills Motorcyclist

0 Comment

Our Michigan motorcycle accident lawyer  is reporting a fatal Allendale Township motorcycle accident that killed Coly Vanderwerf, on Saturday, March 17th, on Lake Michigan Drive near 88th Avenue Street. According to police, Vanderwerf failed to stop for a car in front of him that was slowing down for another car making a left turn. Due to motorcycle accident, Vanderwerf was ejected from his motorcycle and killed. Myra Amaro-Avarez, the driver of the vehicle in front of him did not sustain any injures in the motorcycle accident.

Even though motorcyclists only account for 3 percent of registered vehicles, they contribute to 13 percent of car accidents. According to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA),  78 percent of all motorcycle accidents occur between a motorcycle and a car. In addition, 68 percent of all rear end accidents involving a motorcycle rear ending a vehicle.

I am terribly sorry to hear about this tragic accident. My condolences go out to the family of the deceased victim.

The family of the deceased victim may be able to make a claim for Survivor Loss Benefits. This can include payment of funeral expenses and loss of other services. At the very least the victims’ family should contact an experienced motorcycle injury attorney to discuss their rights. At the very least, an experienced Michigan motorcycle accident lawyer should be contacted to discuss legal rights.
