Motorcyclists Injured In Drunk Driving Accidents

Motorcyclists Injured in Drunk Driving Accidents

Michigan Drunk Driving Motorcycle Accident Attorney 300x199 Motorcyclists Injured In Drunk Driving AccidentsOur motorcycle accident attorneys at Buckfire & Buckfire, P.C. represent injured motorcyclists and bike passengers against drunk drivers and the establishment that served the alcohol throughout the entire State of Michigan.  The number of drunken driving accidents reported every year is staggering and many involve cars and trucks striking innocent bikers.  Tragically, many accidents caused by drunk drivers result in fatalities.

Under Michigan, a person who is injured by driver under the influence of alcohol has several different legal claims that can be pursued.  First, a claim can be filed for Michigan no-fault insurance benefits which provide for payment of unlimited medical expenses, lost wages, attendant care services and other benefits.   Second, the injured person may be able to file a dram shop claim against the person or business that served the alcohol to the driver prior to the accident.   Finally, a claim can be filed against the drunk driver to seek compensation for pain and suffering, disability, and other damages.

There are very strict time deadlines for filing for each type of claim and if you miss a deadline your right to compensation will be lost forever.  Our experienced motorcycle lawyers will move quickly on your case so that all of your claims are timely filed.

You may have several questions after your involvement in the motorcycle crash, including:

  • What rights do I have against the drunk driver?
  • Which insurance company has to pay my medical expenses and lost wages?
  • When can I sue the bar, restaurant, or other business that sold alcohol to the intoxicated driver?
  • How much is a fair settlement money for my case?
  • How much time do I have to file a lawsuit against the drunk driver?
  • Do I need a lawyer to file my motorcycle accident claim?

Call us now at (800) 606-1717 and speak to our motorcycle lawyers to get answers to these and all other questions answered.  We offer a free, no obligation case review and will spend as much time as you need to explain your rights to you.  If you do need legal representation, we will represent you under our No Fee Promise, which means no legal fees or costs until we win or settle your claim.
