Experienced Detroit Area Motorcycle Accident Attorney

Motorcycle accidents have many unique issues:

  • Assignment of fault – From police officers and insurance adjusters to witnesses and jury members, there is a built-in bias against “bikers.” We have to overcome the knee-jerk assumption that the motorcyclist was at fault.
  • Serious injuries – Motorcycle operators and motorcycle passengers are far more likely to die in a collision or suffer serious, permanent or catastrophic injuries. We have handled cases of head injury, spinal cord injury, lost limbs, broken legs, road rash burns and abrasions, and serious scarring and disfigurement.
  • Insurance coverage – Unlike victims of car accidents, injured motorcyclists are not covered by no-fault (PIP) insurance for their medical bills and lost wages. This can create serious hardships and legal issues if the other driver is not insured or if the motorcyclist does not have health insurance.
  • Comparative negligence – Michigan’s helmet law requires all motorcyclists to wear one. Even when another driver is at fault, failure to wear a motorcycle helmet can reduce the victim’s compensation.
