Our injury lawyers at the Michigan law firm of Buckfire & Buckfire, P.C. recently settled a bicycle-car accident claim on behalf of a bicyclist hit by car in the City of Royal Oak. Our client was riding his bike along the sidewalk of Northbound Woodward Ave. when the driver of a vehicle ran into him.
As a result of the car accident, the bicyclist suffered serious injuries including injuries to the neck, back, hip and knee. His injuries required long-term care and a long recovery; therefore he also missed an extended period of time from his employment with Ford Motor Company in Flat Rock, Michigan.
The driver was not cited for failure to yield and no tickets were issued at the time of the incident. The driver that hit our client claimed that it was not his fault, saying our client was "riding his bike recklessly on the side of the road and into the side of her vehicle."
Our injury lawyers filed a personal injury lawsuit against the driver, claiming she was in fact at fault for the accident and cause for our client’s injuries. The claim sought damages for the pain and suffering and disability caused in the collision and the resulting injuries. We won the lawsuit before ever going to trial, proving that the driver was in fact at fault and helping our client collect monetary compensation for their pain and suffering damages.
