Our motorcycle accident attorneys in Michigan recently settled a lawsuit on behalf of a client who suffered serious injuries in a Monroe Township crash. The lawsuit arose out of a motorcycle accident that occurred at the intersection of Hull Road and Dunbar. A negligent driver (the Defendant) made a left turn in his pick-up truck off of Hull Road directly into the path of our client. Our motorcyclist client was lawfully riding his bike along Dunbar through the intersection when the pickup truck hit him. The police gave the Defendant a ticket for failure to yield to traffic.
As a result of the Monroe Township collision, our client suffered serious injuries, including a fractured right humerus with complete displacement of the neck that required surgery and hardware, left displaced tibial plateau fracture, left fifth metatarsal fracture, large painful fracture blisters on the left foot requiring multiple irrigations and debridements, fractured left orbital, two fractured ribs on the left side, and road rash to the face, arms, knees, and back. He was confined to an institution for rehab for approximately 3 months during which time he received in-patient physical therapy and occupational therapy.
In addition, he is unable to return back to work, missing five months of work due to his resulting injuries.
Our Buckfire & Buckfire, P.C. motorcycle accident attorneys filed a lawsuit on behalf of our our client. At the time of the accident, the Defendant driver had insurance on the pick-up truck that he was driving. Therefore, our Michigan lawyers filed a claim against the at-fault driver’s insurance company seeking “pain and suffering” damages sustained by our injured client as a result of the driver’s negligence.
After negotiations with Defendant’s insurance carrier, the case was settled for insurance policy limits. Our top rated motorcycle accident lawyers were able to help our client get compensation within 6 months of the date of the accident.
When a person is a victim of someone else’s negligence in a motorcycle crash, they can recover noneconomic damages, also known as pain and suffering. Pain and suffering typically includes (1) physical pain and suffering; (2) mental anguish; (3) fright and shock; (4) denial of social pleasure and enjoyments; and (5) embarrassment, humiliation or mortification. Noneconomic damages can also include scarring from either a laceration caused during the accident or from a surgical scar.
An injured motorcyclist may also be able to recover for aggravations to pre-existing conditions as well, such as back or shoulder complications.
