What We Did to Win the Settlement

Our motorcycle accident lawyers filed a lawsuit in Wayne County Circuit Court against the at-fault driver and owner of the at-fault vehicle. As part of discovery, we investigated the accident and obtained the documentation from the investigating police department, photos, medical records and other relevant information regarding the accident.

Depositions were taken of our clients, which, in conjunction with the information in the police report, established the negligence of the at-fault driver.

Our client suffered multiple injuries in the accident. He used multiple creams to treat the burn to his wrist and required arthroscopic surgery to repair the damage to his left knee. He also attended multiple sessions of physical therapy for his neck and knee, as well as for back pain developed from compensating for his knee issues.

A panel of case evaluators valued the case at $44,500.00. However, we moved forward toward trial and ultimately resolved the case for $57,500.00 through facilitation.
