Our Macomb County personal injury lawyers recently filed a bicycle accident lawsuit on behalf of a sixty-five year old Clinton Township man. Our client was riding his bicycle during the afternoon on Moravian Road when the defendant’s vehicle crossed the fog line on the right side of the road and struck him on his bike. The force of the impact caused our client to fall from the bike and he was struck by the windshield of the car. He then rolled off the car and fell on the roadway.
The driver was clearly not paying attention and continued driving with the bicycle under her car. Two independent eye-witnesses have provided statements to the police. The driver was faulted for the accident and was ticketed. Statistics prove that Macomb County has the second highest number of bicycle related accidents in Southeast Michigan. The biggest cities in Macomb County for bicycle accidents included Warren, Sterling Heights, Clinton Township, Mt. Clemens, Utica, St. Clair Shores, and Macomb.
The bicyclist suffered very serious injuries in the bike accident. He suffered a loss of consciousness due to the head trauma and sustained a fractured cervical spine at the C-2 level, injuries to both shoulders, weakness in his right arm, as well as multiple bruises and abrasions. He will undergo surgical repair of the cervical spine fracture.
We filed the bicycle injury lawsuit in the Macomb County Circuit Court in Mt. Clemens, Michigan. The suit seeks damages for the biker’s pain and suffering, disability, scars and disfigurement, and other non-economic damages. His medical expenses and other bills are being paid by his Michigan No-Fault Insurance company. No trial date has been set by the court.
