Kalamazoo Motorcycle Accident Lawyer Settles Biker Injury Case

Comments (0)

Our Kalamazoo motorcycle accident lawyers recently settled a claim for a woman who suffered a leg injury in a motorcycle accident.  She was a passenger on the bike and was hit by a Chrysler minivan that turned in front of their motorcycle.  We had previously settled the claim against the negligent motorist for the driver of the motorcycle.

Often times cars jeopardize the safety of motorcyclists on the road. In fact, statistics prove that the majority of motorcycle accidents are caused by a vehicle driver. Typically a motor vehicle driver is in a hurry and does not pay close attention to the road or keep an eye on their blind spots. Motorcycles are much smaller in size rather than the average vehicle, in turn, makes motorcycles harder to see. These are common errors drivers make that cause most motorcycle accidents:

  • When cars make left-hand turns
  • Avoiding the motorcycles right-of-way
  • Blind Spots
  • Forcing a motorcycle to the guard rail
  • Speeding

The motorcycle passenger suffered a leg fracture that required surgery.  It did not heal well and she had a difficult course of recovery.  We filed a claim against the negligent driver’s insurance company and settled the claim for $ 75,000, prior to the filing of a lawsuit.  The negligent driver was insured up to $100,000 by the insurance company.
