Dearborn Heights Man Involved In Motorcycle Accident With Uninsured Driver Receives Settlement

Case Type: Michigan No-Fault Insurance Benefits for Motorcycle Accident

Settlement: $27,500

Plaintiff: Bruce McBride
Defendant: Progressive Insurance
Date of Settlement: Nov. 15, 2016

Facts of the Motorcycle Accident Case

McBride was injured on Sept. 17, 2015 when he was involved in a motorcycle versus motor vehicle accident near the intersection of Ann Arbor Trail and Telegraph in Dearborn Heights, Mich.

Bruce was travelling on his motorcycle eastbound on Ann Arbor Trail approaching Telegraph when a motor vehicle failed to yield the right of way and pulled out in front of Bruce from a gas station on the North side of the street causing a sideswipe accident which rendered both vehicles undriveable.

The at-fault driver was uninsured, so a residual liability claim was made against our client-own Progressive motorcycle insurance pursuant to the uninsured motorist coverage.

Types of Injuries and Harm Suffered

Hairline fracture of the fifth metacarpal of his left hand
Left thumb sprain
Acute displaced fracture through the proximal fifth phalanx in his left foot

Other Types of Damages

  • Pain and suffering
  • Inability to enjoy family activities, hobbies, social activities

Legal Issues in the Case

  • Did the operator or owner of the at fault vehicle have insurance?
  • What is the settlement value of our client's case?

What We Did To Win The Settlement

I gathered the necessary documentation, including police report and pertinent medical records, and submitted a demand package to Progressive in an effort to resolve the matter.

After a series of negotiations, a settlement was reached approximately one year after the accident, avoiding the need for protracted and costly litigation.
