The Buckfire & Buckfire, P.C. biker injury attorneys recently settled a $75,000 motorcycle accident lawsuit. The lawsuit arose out of a motorcycle-motor vehicle accident that took place along Orchard Lake Road. Our lawyers were able to prove that the operator of the motor vehicle hit our client motorcyclist when attempting to change into his lane.
Although the public often thinks that bikers are responsible for motorcycle accidents, statistics show that most motorcycle accident injuries in Michigan are caused by the negligence of another driver. An often-overlooked fact is that the other drivers either fail to respect or pay attention to motorcycles. The results in a wide variety of car-motorcycle and truck-motorcycle accidents, including:
- Cars rear-ending motorcycles
- Cars or trucks failing to signal before changing lanes
- Other vehicles making a right turn from the center lane and failing to see a motorcycle to their right
- Trucks or cars forcing motorcycles into a guard rail
- Drivers running a red light or stop sign without seeing the motorcycle
The injured biker is currently receiving injections to treat his injuries, which included a herniated disc at C5-6; herniated disc at L4-L5; left L5 radiculopathy; and coccygodynia. Sugery was not recommended.
