I read a tragic story about an Arlington couple who died in a Michigan motorcycle accident last Sunday afternoon on Michigan highways near Mesick, Michigan. Larry Hallstrom and his wife Julie Hallstrom suffered fatal injuries when their motorcycle collided with a mini-van. Police are still investigating the accident.
This is just one of a number of tragic motorcycle accident recently reported in Michigan. My firm has been retained to represent family members of the bikers in several of these cases against the negligent drivers that caused the accident. In most cases, it seems to be a motorist simply not paying attention to the road or the bikers that is the cause of the accident.
In a case like this, the accident would give rise to a Michigan Wrongful Death Lawsuit. In this type of case, the surviving family members can seek compensation for the lost of their loved ones. It is essential to hire an experienced lawyer as soon as possible after the accident so that a complete and thorough investigation can be performed.
