Our Michigan bike accident injury attorney at Buckfire & Buckfire recently settled a lawsuit on behalf of a bicyclist who suffered serious injuries in a car accident. She was riding her bike when she was struck by a car that failed to stop before the crosswalk in a Wayne County intersection. Our injured bicyclist client was taken by ambulance to Oakwood Hospital due to the injuries suffered in the car accident.
The bicyclist suffered serious injuries in the accident. These included multiple facial wounds, and injuries to the thumb and knee, which required surgery. Due to her knee surgery, our client is unable to work.
We filed the bicycle accident lawsuit in the Wayne County Circuit Court located in Detroit, Michigan. It was settled before going to trial in the amount of $80,000. Our Buckfire & Buckfire, P.C. bike accident injury attorneys were able to negotiate a settlement during a case evaluation and prove that the defendant driver committed perjury by testifying at the deposition that she did in fact see the bicyclist, even though her immediate 911 phone call claimed that she did not.
