Our Michigan bicycle accident lawyers recently filed a lawsuit for a client injured in a bicycle accident in Ann Arbor, Michigan. Our client was an undergraduate student at the University of Michigan at the time of the accident. He suffered serious and disabling injuries in the crash.
The accident occurred as the bicyclist was lawfully riding his bicycle on northbound East Huron River Drive in the bike lane in the Township of Ann Arbor, Washtenaw County, Michigan. He was struck by a driver who was not paying attention and attempted to turn into a private drive.
Michigan has specific laws that address accidents in which a driver makes an improper left turn and causes an accident hitting a pedestrian. According to Michigan law, failing, before turning, from a direct line, to see that such movement could be made in safety, is in violation of Mich. Comp. Laws Ann. §257.648.
The bicyclist suffered multiple injuries, including a traumatic brain injury. He was unable to return to Ann Arbor to complete his degree and underwent lengthy and intensive cognitive rehabilitation near his Boston area residence. To this date, he still suffers problems from his brain injury and has not returned to normal function.
The lawsuit was filed in the Washtenaw County Circuit Court in Ann Arbor, Michigan. The suit seeks damages for his pain and suffering, disability, and loss of future earnings. No trial date has been set by the court.
