Motorcycle Accident Attorney in Michigan
In Michigan, motorcycle accidents require the attention of a knowledgeable and experienced attorney. Because motorcycles are not considered “motor vehicles” under Michigan’s No-Fault Act, a skilled attorney is necessary to navigate the law to determine whether and from whom benefits may be recovered.
When a motorcyclist is injured in an accident involving a motor vehicle, the motorcyclist may seek benefits from insurers in the following order of priority:
If a motorcyclist, therefore, is in an accident with a motor vehicle, the motorcyclist is entitled to all of the first-party benefits allowed under Michigan’s No-Fault Act. A discussion of these benefits can be found under the “First-Party No-Fault Claims” Section.
Additionally, if a motorcyclist is the victim of a negligent driver, he or she may be entitled to receive third-party benefits for pain and suffering, mental anguish, disfigurement, loss of body function, incapacity, disability, loss of enjoyment of life, depravation of social and familial pleasures, and embarrassment. To prevail in these types of cases, one must first prove that they were not at fault. Secondly, one must meet a threshold of death, permanent serious disfigurement, or serious impairment of body function.
