I am a former U.S. Army Ranger and an avid biker. I have been riding a Harley Davidson motorcycle for over 25 years and am a member a Michigan motorcycle club. On October 9, 2006, I was riding my bike in Detroit when a tractor-trailer truck pulled into my lane of travel and forced me to roll my bike into an oncoming lane of traffic. I suffered catastrophic injuries, including a traumatic brain injury and numerous bone fractures, which required multiple surgeries. I am completely disabled from my work as a truck driver and have required around the clock nursing assistance from my wife during the 1st several months after my release from the hospital.
While I was in the hospital, my wife did extensive research on lawyers on the internet to find the best law firm to handle my case. She contacted attorney Daniel Buckfire and he came to the hospital to visit us. He carefully explained my rights under the Michigan No-Fault law and answered our concerns over who would pay my medical bills and lost wages. He taught us about other benefits, like attendant care, that we did not even know existed. We were very impressed with him and hired Buckfire & Buckfire P.C. to handle our case.
The insurance company for the trucking company told us that they were not responsible for paying my medical bills and other benefits, which was not true. The motorcycle accident lawyer at Buckfire & Buckfire proved them wrong and they have paid over $500,000.00 in insurance benefits. The firm also immediately began their investigation and hired the best accident reconstruction experts to interview witnesses, take photographs, inspect the vehicles involved and investigate the case. The trucking company blamed me for my injuries, but the experts proved that the truck driver was at fault for my injuries. The firm did not spare any expense in proving my case and settled my case for $1,100,000.00, within one year of the accident.
I could not be more pleased with the work that they did for my family and me. My attorney paid attention to every detail and fought the insurance companies to the end.
Hiring Buckfire & Buckfire for my case was the best decision I could have made. In my opinion, they are the bese motorcycle accident lawyers in Michigan.
