Our Michigan motorcycle accident lawyer recently filed a wrongful death lawsuit stemming from a Southfield motorcycle accident. We represent the biker's family in this lawsuit. The motorcyclist was riding his bike on 12 Mile Road near Franklin Road when a motorist negligently turned in front of his motorcycle and struck him. He was thrown from the motorcycle and died at the scene. Police issued a ticket to the driver and the prosecutor's office is considering filing criminal charges.
The wrongful death lawsuit seeks all permissible damages under the Michigan Wrongful Death Statute. These include claims for the loss of his companionship by his family, loss of earnings, funeral expenses, and other damages. The suit was filed in the Oakland County Circuit Court. No trial date has been set.
