Motorcycle Accident Injury Lawyer: Injured rider will ride again!

On August 22nd, a St. Claire Shores couple was out riding their motorcycle when they were struck by a car and injured. Kevin Bruisnma and his wife were heading southbound on Harper in St. Claire Shores when a car drove through the turn lane and into the couple. The couple was thrown from the motorcycle and both of them sustained serious injuries. Kevin’s wife Heather had three cracked ribs and torn ligaments in her knee. She will need additional surgeries to repair the ligament damage to her leg. Kevin’s left femur was crushed in four places and his right wrist and foot were also badly broken. He has rods in his leg and can currently only move his left hand. He will have to undergo several weeks of hospitalization and then months of rehabilitation and therapy in an effort to learn to walk again.

Although they were badly injured, the motorcycle accident could have been far worse. Bruinsma had enough awareness of the oncoming car to make a sudden turn away from the vehicle. This quick thinking action may have saved both of their lives. Bruinsma credits a recent motorcycle safety refresher course he recently took with his life-saving maneuver.
When reporters asked Bruinsma if he would ever ride his motorcycle again, he said “absolutely”.
Kevin Bruinsma, we look forward to seeing you on the road again SOON!
