Uninsured Motorist Settlement for Motorcycle Accident Victim

0 Comment

Our Michigan attorneys recently settled an uninsured motorist settlement on behalf of a motorcycle accident victim hit by a driver with no insurance.  The collision took place in Burton, Michigan.  Our motorcyclist client was riding bike northbound on Saginaw, near the intersection of Brady, when suddenly without warning, a driver riding northbound as well changed lanes and turned in front of our client’s bike.  Due to the impact of the crash, our client went down on his bike and suffered serious injuries.

We filed the lawsuit in Genesee County Circuit Court against the Defendant driver and our client’s uninsured motorists insurance company.

Injuries to our motorcyclist client, included a right grade 3 AC separation, fracture injuries to the ribs, lacerations to the right ear, lower lip and chin, and other injuries that required surgery and confined him to a wheel chair for 2 ½ months.  His injuries did not allow him to return to work for approximately four months, nor attend to household chores. Due to the motorcycle victim not being able to go to work, there was a loss of income in the household for him and his wife. 

The driver that hit the biker did not have insurance on her vehicle.  Fortunately, our client had uninsured motorists coverage on his motorcycle insurance policy which provides coverage in the event he was injured by an uninsured motorist.

When involved in a motorcycle accident caused by a driver with no insurance, it is important to review your own insurance declaration page to determine whether you have uninsured motorist coverage on your policy.  This is a type of coverage that you paid for to protect yourself and your family members in the event you were injured in an accident by a driver with no auto insurance.   You may still be able to make a claim even if you did not have this coverage but a family member living in the same household had this benefit.   This coverage does not apply to just motorcycle accidents, but car accidents, bicycle accidents, and even pedestrians.

Our top rated Michigan motorcycle attorneys were able to settle the uninsured motorists claim for $87,500.00.  We were also able to obtain a $200,000.00 default judgment against the negligent driver personally.
