Saginaw Motorcycle Accident

1 Comment

A Flint woman was sentenced for her involvement in a Saginaw motorcycle accident on February 23, 2009.  Monica Pool, 21, was sentenced to pay a $720 fine and spend 5 years on probation, with the first year being under house arrest for drunk driving and causing an motorcycle accident on I-75 in Saginaw County during August 2006.  This accident caused the death of a passenger in the motorcycle, Jennifer Argenta.

Although many people are happy to see Monica Pool punished for her crime, some people are angry that her sentence did not include any jail time.  I am hopeful that this accident will serve to remind others of the terrible consequences of drinking and driving.

The sentence comes at the end of a criminal trial or criminal proceeding.  Completely separate from that is a civil lawsuit, in which the deceased accident victim’s family would seek private compensation for the death of the accident victim.  Michigan law allows only those who are very seriously injured to sue for wrongful death.

Motorcycle riders less seriously injured can file a claim for Michigan No Fault insurance when they are involved in an accident with a car.  No Fault insurance will pay for medical expenses, lost wages, and other benefits.  A No Fault survivor loss claim provides additional money for part of the funeral costs.
