Jackson Hit and Run Motorcycle Accident

0 Comment

A Jackson hit and run motorcycle accident has left the biker injured.  The accident occurred at the intersection of Styles Road and Meridian Road on December 24, 2008.  The motorcyclist was stopped at a stop sign when a truck turned into the bike.  The truck driver fled the scene while the biker was taken to Allegiance Health Center and then UM Hospital for treatment.  He was believed to be seriously injured.  Police are still investigating the accident and trying to identify the hit and run driver.

I am very sorry this accident occurred, especially since it was during the holidays.  I hope this man is able to recover completely from his injuries.

Because the motorcyclist was injured in an accident that involved a truck, the Michigan No Fault Act applies.  The man will be able to file a claim for No Fault insurance benefits.  No Fault insurance will pay for this man’s medical expenses including his current hospital bills and any reasonable and necessary follow-up treatment.  No Fault insurance will also pay for a portion of his lost wages, household replacement services, and attendant care benefits.  More information about all of these benefits is available in the Insurance Information section of this website.

In addition to his claim for No Fault insurance, this man may be able to file a lawsuit for additional damages.  For instance, No Fault insurance only pays for lost wages for up to three years after the accident.  If this man was disabled from work for more than that, he could collect lost earnings in a lawsuit.  Or, he could collect non-economic damages like pain and suffering.  Michigan law only allows people with very serious injuries to file a lawsuit after an accident like this, so this man should consult with a lawyer to determine if he has the option of filing a lawsuit.
