Ann Arbor Bicycle Accident Lawsuit Filed for Traumatic Brain Injury

The Ann Arbor bicycle accident lawyers recently filed a lawsuit on behalf of a man who suffered serious and disabling injuries after being hit by a car. Injuries suffered in the crash include a traumatic brain injury, pain and suffering.

The lawsuit was filed in the Washtenaw County Circuit Court in Ann Arbor, Michigan. The bicycle accident lawsuit seeks damages of pain and suffering, disability, and loss of future earnings against the at-fault driver who hit our bicyclist client.

Our client was lawfully riding his bicycle on northbound East Huron River Drive in the bike lane, when he was struck by a driver who was distracted attempting to turn into a private drive.

Under Michigan law, failing to check to see if it is clear and safe to turn from a direct line on traffic is in violation of Mich. Comp. Laws Ann. §257.648. There are very strict time limitations in pursuing this type of claim. Therefore, if you are involved in a Michigan bicycle accident, we recommend that you contact our experienced Ann Arbor attorneys immediately.

To help prevent a car from hitting you while riding your bike on our Michigan roads, we recommend you know the following safety tips provided by the League of Michigan Bicyclists.  These tips include:

  1. Ride to the right and never against traffic.
  2. Ride your bike predictably, consistently and attentively.
  3. When stopping your bike for a rest or emergency, move completely off the road.
  4. When at an intersection make sure to make eye contact with drivers.
  5. Signal your turns by using the appropriate signals (i.e. signal left turn by extending left arm straight out to left, signal right turns with an upturned left arm, signal stopping or slowing by extending your left arm straight down with your palm
    facing rearward)
