Bicycle Accident Lawyer Files Injury Lawsuit in Michigan for Biker

Comments (0)

Our Michigan bicycle accident lawyers recently filed a bicycle versus motor vehicle lawsuit for a client in the Wayne County Circuit Court located in Detroit, Michigan.  The case arises out of an accident that occurred in the city of Taylor, when our client was riding his bicycle on the sidewalk on Allen Road and the driver of the car failed to see the bicyclist. The negligent driver struck the bicyclist in the front forks causing him to be thrown to the ground. 


Statistics show that one bicyclist is injured every 5 hours and 34 minutes. Catastrophic injuries are frequent outcomes of bicycle-car accidents and many motorists depend on certain arguments to be considered not at-fault. Most of the time evidence does not support their claims, however, these common arguments include:

  • Bicyclist was speeding at the time of the car accident.
  • Bike/bicyclist was not visible to the eye. I.e. traffic, no bright clothing, night time, etc…
  • Bike was improperly positioned in the traffic lane. I.e. weaving in and out of traffic or traveling to close to other vehicles.
  • Driver did not see the bicyclist.
Our client suffered multiple abrasions, to his head, arms, hand and legs.  He fractured his thumb (first MCP joint) and ultimately needed surgical repair for his thumb injury.  Our client is a chef and has been off work since the date of the accident on 12-07-11.  The client has also needed assistance with his household chores, which are being paid by the No-Fault insurance carrier.  There has been no trial date set by the court.
