Buckfire & Buckfire, P.C’s motorcycle lawyer recently settled a passenger injury lawsuit for injuries in a Michigan accident. The lawsuit was filed in the Wayne County Circuit Court and settled in the amount of $65,000.
The lawsuit arises out a motorcycle-truck trailer accident that took place on Telegraph Road in the left lane of travel. The negligent driver was making an illegal left turn when his trailer swung from the left lane into the right lane. At this time, the operator of the motorcycle was in the right lane when the trailer swung over without warning, which then caused the motorcycle to rear end the trailer.
On the bike, was a passenger who unfortunately suffered serious injuries in the collision, including but not limited to fractured ribs, hip and pelvis, comminuted sacral fracture, laceration on the buttocks, significant subcutaneous edema and swelling over the left abdomen and gluteal region. The passenger injured had to undergo surgery for his injuries, and the doctors have also recommended additional surgery for his tailbone fracture which is contributing to his ongoing disability and lower extremity pain.
