Our motorcycle accident injury lawyers recently settled a lawsuit for a biker in a Wyoming, Michigan motorcycle accident. The motorcyclist is a fifty-eight year old certified dental technician, who is married and makes dental mold for a living. He is a United States Air Force veteran with a college degree. He is an experienced biker who understands the rules of the road and rides his motorcycle in a safe and careful manner.
The accident was caused by a negligent motorist who made a Michigan “left - U” turn and did not see the motorcyclist. The defendant driver took a wide turn and entered into the motorcyclist lane, the right lane, causing the accident. We proved that the driver was careless and negligent in the operation of his car and this was the cause of the accident.
The client suffered serious injuries in the accident. These include fractures to the knee and ankle, which were more specifically a left tibial plateau fracture and an avulsion fracture to the left lateral malleolus. He underwent two surgeries, including an ORIF to repair the condition and a hardware removal surgery. He continues to suffer from residual pain and problems in the left ankle.
We filed our lawsuit in the Kent County Circuit Court in Grand Rapids, Michigan. After taking depositions, the lawsuit was settled for the $100,000 insurance policy limits for the negligent driver before a trial. The defendant was insured for liability coverage with AAA of Michigan
