Our Oakland County motorcycle attorneys recently helped our client, an injured motorcyclist, settle a no-fault insurance claim against his own auto insurance company. Our client was riding his bike when he was struck while attempting to cross an intersection in Farmington Hills, Michigan.
As a result of the crash, he suffered a knee and thigh injury and had to undergo surgery to determine the extent of injury to his tendon. In addition, due to the resulting injuries he missed time from work and required assistance around the home, such as performing basic housework.
Immediately after the motorcycle accident, our clients’ insurance company began paying no-fault benefits. There are several types of no-fault benefits available and Michigan victims are entitled to such benefits dependent on accident, type of injuries resulted and how it affects their life.
In this incident, our client required payment of medical expenses, lost wages benefits, attendant care and replacement services. Under state law, he is eligible to receive such benefits. The insurance company began to pay and then later cut-off benefits refusing to pay thereafter.
Our motorcycle attorneys stepped in and filed a claim on behalf of the injured motorcyclist for their denial of payment as required by Michigan statutory law. We were able to settle the claim prior to trial.
