Facts of the Case

On September 26, 2016, Plaintiff was operating a motorcycle on E. Mitchell Road near the intersection of N. Fletcher Road in Emmet County. Our client was stopped behind another vehicle that was making a left hand turn. Without warning, the defendant rear-ended our client’s motorcycle. The force of the impact destroyed the motorcycle and caused our client to be thrown, with great force, to the pavement. The defendant had no explanation for rear-ending our client other than the fact that he was not paying attention to the roadway in front of himself. Settlement negotiations were initiated with the driver's insurance carrier.

Types of Injuries and Harm Suffered

  • Two fractured toes
  • Road rash on back, arms

Legal Issues in the Case

  • Did our client’s injuries meet the threshold of a serious impairment of an important bodily function?
  • Did our client’s scarring meet the threshold of permanent serious disfigurement?

What We Did To Win The Settlement

We obtained all of the accident investigation materials and medical records for our client. We initiated early settlement negotiations with the driver’s insurance carrier. The case was resolved in a timely fashion without the need for filling a lawsuit against the at-fault driver.
