Our motorcycle accident attorneys recently settled a no-fault insurance lawsuit against Progressive Insurance Company for a biker injured in a Detroit motorcycle accident. The injured motorcycle sustained a closed head injury and multiple bone fractures to his low back, ribs, hand, and ankle. He was sideswiped by an automobile while riding his motorcycle on Caniff Street in the City of Detroit.
The injured biker submitted his no-fault insurance claims to his auto insurance company, Progressive Insurance, but they were improperly denied. Bikers and motorcycle passengers injured in a motorcycle accident may be entitled to Michigan no-fault insurance benefits. The eligibility for these benefits is based upon a number of factors, including whether the motorcycle was insured, the ownership of the motorcycle, and the facts of the accident itself. The determination as to whether injury victims can receive these benefits involves a number of complex legal issues and it is therefore important that an experienced Michigan motorcycle accident lawyer be consulted as soon as possible so that important insurance filing deadlines are not missed.
We filed a no-fault insurance lawsuit on his behalf for unpaid attendant care service benefits and unpaid medical expenses. The lawsuit was filed in the Wayne County Circuit Court. The case was settled for $18,000.00 to cover the unpaid benefits along with attorney’s fees and costs.
