Surviving A Michigan Motor Cycle Crash

0 Comment

Michigan ranks first among the states in production of motor vehicles and parts. Unfortunately, Michigan is also one of the leaders in terms of growing risk of road accidents and subsequent fatalities. According to 2007 statistics:

  • Of the 10 million people living in Michigan, one out of every 9,291 was killed in a traffic crash.
  • One out of every 125 people was injured.
  • For each person killed, 74.3 people were injured.

The numbers for Michigan motorcycle accidents are even more compelling.  In Michigan, the number of motorcycles involved in crashes between 2006 (3386) and 2007 (3821) has increased by 12.8%. The mortality rate during that same time rose by 9.1%, while the number of motorcyclists injured rose by 11.8%. In the last decade, the number of Michigan motorcycle accidents shot up by 45%. The number of accidents that resulted in death in Michigan grew by an alarming 98%.

In spite of this, many of us really do not know about the laws that will govern insurance claims and dictate the results of lawsuits until we are face to face with some unfortunate event. The Michigan No-Fault Insurance laws are complex and confusing and they are even more complex for accidents involving motorcycles in Michigan.  To make matters worse, your own insurance agent is not even responsible for telling you about your legal rights or your entitlement to benefits after an accident.  For this reason, it is essential to contact an experienced Michigan motorcycle accident lawyer after your accident.

When you or someone you know is involved in an accident, the first thing an accident victim should do is to speak with a lawyer.  An experienced Michigan motorcycle accident lawyer will help accident victims understand their legal rights and ensure that all forms and insurance documents are submitted to the proper insurance company in a timely manner.  Many bikers are entitled to significant insurance benefits that they are not even aware of and will never discover if they do not speak to a lawyer.
