Our Michigan bicycle lawyers won a $250,000 settlement against a negligent driver in a wrongful death lawsuit. The driver fatally struck a woman who was riding her bicycle on the side of the street. The driver saw the biker in advance and struck her, causing her tragic death. The driver had no real explanation as to how the accident happened.
A wrongful death lawsuit was filed in the Shiawassee County Circuit Court. The case was settled for the full auto insurance policy limits after the deposition of the driver was taken. The woman was survived by her parents, siblings, adult children, and grandchildren. The circuit court judge approved the settlement.
