Settlement For Injuries In Grand Rapids Area Motorcycle Accident

0 Comment

The Buckfire motorcycle accident attorneys recently settled a lawsuit for $100,000 on behalf of an injured motorcyclist.  The accident, which took place in Wyoming, Michigan, was caused by a negligent motorist who made a Michigan “left-U” turn and did not see the motorcyclist. The defendant driver took a wide turn and entered into the motorcyclist lane, the right lane, causing the collision.

Our client, a fifty-eight year old man, suffered serious injuries in the motorcycle accident, including fractures to the knee and ankle, which were more specifically a left tibial plateau fracture and an avulsion fracture to the left lateral malleolus. He also underwent two surgeries, including an ORIF to repair the condition and a hardware removal surgery. He continues to suffer from residual pain and problems in the left ankle.

The injured motorcyclist is married and a certified dental technician, making dental mold for a living. He is a United States Air Force veteran with a college degree and an experienced biker who understands the rules of the road.

The motorcycle accident injury lawsuit was filed in the Kent County Circuit Court in Grand Rapids, Michigan. After taking depositions, the lawsuit settled for the $100,000 insurance policy limits for the negligent driver before a trial. The defendant was insured for liability coverage with AAA of Michigan and the Buckfire Law accident attorneys were able to prove that the vehicle driver was careless and negligent in the operation of his car and this was the cause of the accident.
