Our Michigan motorcycle accident lawyers recently settled a lawsuit on behalf of a 46-year-old man against the negligent operator of a motor vehicle for pain and suffering incurred as a result of injuries he sustained in the motorcycle versus motor vehicle accident in New Buffalo, Michigan. Our client was lawfully operating his motorcycle in the westbound curb lane of Buffalo Street. A motor vehicle which had likewise been travelling west on Buffalo Street in the lane next to our client suddenly made a lane change into our client’s lane without seeing the motorcycle. The motor vehicle slammed into the motorcycle, sending the motorcycle into the curb and ejecting from our client from it. We filed a lawsuit on behalf of our client against the negligent driver for the pain and suffering damages caused by his negligence.
Our client’s injuries included a fractured left fibula, road rash of his shoulders, elbows and knees, and also a sprained AC joint and aggravation of a degenerative low back condition. He subsequently developed a blood clot in his injured leg for which medication was administered. He also received physical therapy for his back. He was disabled from his job in a steel mill for approximately 4 months and during that time also needed assistance with household chores and attendant care.
Depositions were taken and discovery exchanged between the parties. The attorney for the motor vehicle operator admitted the liability of his driver and the parties subsequently amicably settled the case for $47,500.00 out of the $50,000.00 policy limits applicable to this loss.
