Our motorcycle attorneys recently settled a lawsuit regarding an accident that occurred on M-123 in Whitefish Township. Our client, a 60-year-old woman, was riding as a passenger on her husband’s bike that was travelling westbound on M-123. The defendant was an operator of a pick-up truck who was traveling eastbound M-123. The negligent driver turned left into a general store directly in the path of the on-coming bike, causing the motorcycle to go down and slide into the rear tire area of the pick-up truck. Our client was ejected from motorcycle and suffered several serious injuries as a result of the motorcycle accident.
Her passenger injuries included a traumatic brain injury, multiple rib fractures, clavicle fracture, thumb fracture, toe fracture, and multiple abrasions. She required two surgeries for her clavicle and attended multiple sessions of therapy for both her head and orthopedic injuries.
Our motorcycle lawyers at the law firm of Buckfire & Buckfire, P.C. filed a lawsuit against the at-fault driver and owner of the pick-up truck. The claim was filed in Mecosta County Circuit Court. Subsequent to the filing of the lawsuit, the defendant admitted to liability for the collision and cause of injury to the bike passenger.
The case then proceeded to case evaluation, at which time a panel of three neutral attorneys evaluated the claim and recommended a monetary award that they believed was a fair compensation under the circumstances of the case. The case settled when each party accepted and agreed upon the settlement amount.
