In August of 2016, Jason and Pamela Walker were enjoying a motorcycle ride on her birthday in Lambertville, Michigan. Suddenly and without warning, a motor vehicle moving in the opposite direction and being operated by a drunk driver crossed the centerline and hit the motorcycle head on, tragically killing the Walkers.

Legal Issues in the Case

  • Who was the owner of the motor vehicle?
  • Was the operator drunk?
  • How much compensation should be paid in a settlement?

What We Did to Win the Settlement

Our motorcycle wrongful death accident lawyers immediately began investigating the matter. We obtained all documents and photos from law enforcement, gathered the pertinent medical records, and determined whether the at-fault party had auto insurance. We also gathered the bills for funeral expenses and obtained the pertinent family information. The Walkers left behind two teenage children. 

We identified the pertinent auto insurer and immediately pursued a settlement with the relevant adjuster. We were able to achieve a $500,000.00 policy limit settlement for our clients in only about three months after the date of the accident, avoiding the need for prolonged and costly litigation.

The settlement included payment for the funeral expenses and compensation for the children for their loss of support, love, society and companionship from their parents.
