Facts of the Motorcycle Accident Case

A 66-year-old client suffered injuries in a St. Ignace, Mich. motorcycle versus motor vehicle accident.

The accident occurred when the operator of a pickup truck negligently made a left turn off of Church Street directly into the path of our client’s motorcycle, which had been lawfully travelling on U.S. 2., which caused our client's motorcycle to broadside the pickup truck.

As the insurer of the involved motor vehicle, Auto Owners Insurance was responsible for payment of our client's Michigan No-Fault benefits, including in his case medical expenses.

Types of Injuries and Harm Suffered

Comminuted fracture of the left femur.

Other Types of Damages

Unpaid medical expenses.

Legal Issues in the Case

Were the claimed medical expenses for care related to injuries sustained in the motorcycle accident?

What We Did To Win The Settlement

We filed a lawsuit in the 92nd District Court against Auto Owners Insurance for payment of the unpaid medical expenses at issue. Depositions were taken of the relevant persons and the case settled subsequent to a case evaluation and settlement conference.
