GM Self-Driving Car, Motorcycle Crash — Injured Biker Sues Manufacturer

Southfield, MI (Law Firm Newswire) April 11, 2018 - A California man filed a lawsuit against General Motors (GMC) alleging he sustained serious shoulder and neck injuries in a collision with a GM self-driving car.

The crash between a GMC self-driving car and a motorcycle is causing concerns about the emerging self-driving vehicle technology seen on the roads today.

According to the plaintiff, last December, while he was riding his motorcycle heading east, in the middle lane, the biker found himself behind a 2016 self-driving Chevrolet. The driver of the self-driving car changed lanes, but then suddenly moved back in front of the motorcycle, hitting the biker and knocking him to the ground.

The motorcyclist alleges that he sustained serious shoulder and neck injuries as a result of the accident and is facing long-term treatment, as well as having to take disability leave from work. The biker filed a lawsuit suggesting the GMc driver was negligent in making sure the vehicle was operating in accordance with traffic regulations and laws and stating that the car made a dangerous and unpredictable move.

The DMV accident report says something different. According to the report, the Chevy began to merge into the left lane, but sensed that another vehicle in that lane had decelerated. In response, the self-driving vehicle returned to the center lane. As the Chevy was moving back into the center lane, the biker moved into the center lane after lane-splitting in the center and right lanes, grazed the car and fell over.

“In cases such as this one, there is usually two sides to the story,” indicated Daren Monroe, Litigation Funding Corporation representative. “Nonetheless, the biker was injured as a result of someone else’s possibly negligent actions, and in order to pay his medical bills, he is suing for compensation.”

Plaintiffs are often forced to settle their cases early, for less than what they may get by going to court. When an injured victim cannot wait for the litigation process to play out, applying for a “lawsuit loan” is an option.

“Litigation funding is a lawsuit cash advance, or lawsuit loan, for everyday needs when you may not be able to find money from family or friends or a traditional bank loan,” explained Monroe. “This kind of advance may mean the difference between paying the rent and facing eviction.”

In order for a seriously injured plaintiff to apply for a lawsuit loan they must hire an attorney and have a strong case with merit. Applying for pre-settlement funding, or a lawsuit loan, against a future settlement, is easy and hassle-free. There is no cost to apply and no up-front or out-of-pocket expenses. Litigation Funding Corporation works with the plaintiff’s attorney to review a case and reach a funding decision in less than 48 hours.

”If you have a personal injury case and questions regarding a lawsuit loan, contact Litigation Funding Corporation at toll-free at 1-866-548-3863,” says Monroe.
