Your Rights After A Michigan Motorcycle Accident

1 Comment

In Michigan, people hear about motorcycle accidents every day. But if you look at the Michigan motorcycle accident statistics, you will quickly realize why it is so important to follow all safety recommendations.

  • Motorcycles were involved in 1.2 percent of all traffic crashes in Michigan in 2007, but 8.2% of fatal crashes involved a motorcycle and 2.7% of accidents with a non-fatal injury involved a motorcycle.
  • Injuries were proportionately more severe to motorcyclists than to persons in Motor vehicles.
  • The 2007 mortality rate for motorcyclists was 15.68 per 100 million vehicle miles traveled.

No one wants to be in a traffic accident, but nonetheless accidents occur for a variety of reasons, including poor weather conditions, ignorant or drunk driving, negligent motorists, defective roads, and more. Regardless of why an accident happens, it is important to be aware of your rights.  This is especially true when an accident involves another car, truck, or other motor vehicle.

Your rights and obligations vary from one State to another, but if you are a Michigan resident, the law is on your side.  In fact, if you have to be involved in an accident, there is practically no better place to be than in Michigan. For example, when a motorcycle is involved in an accident with a car or truck, the motorcyclist can receive No Fault insurance benefits even though the Michigan No Fault Act does not normally allow motorcyclist to qualify for No Fault benefits!

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 can help accident victims understand their rights and get every dollar they deserve from their insurance company and the other drivers involved.
