Our motorcycle accident lawyer in Kalamazoo recently settled a wrongful death claim for fatal Kalamazoo County motorcycle accident. The injured biker was a 55 year old man who had multiple medical conditions at the time of the accident. The accident occurred when a teenage driver carelessly pulled away from a stop sign into the path of the biker. He was ticketed by police for the accident.
The motorcyclist suffered a fractured leg in the accident and underwent surgery for the orthopedic fracture injury. While in the hospital recovering from the surgery, his condition worsened due to his other medical conditions. Unfortunately, his condition continued to spiral and he died two days later.
On behalf of the family, our attorney filed a claim with the negligent driver’s auto insurance company. We were able to negotiate a settlement with the insurance company for the policy limits of $100,000.00. It was determined that there were not collectible assets above and beyond the insurance policy limits. The settlement proceeds will be distributed to his surviving family members.
