Michigan is a no-fault state which means your
auto insurance company is liable to pay for your no-fault benefits or economic losses, such as
medical bill reimbursement, lost wages due to time off of work, attendant
care (in-home nursing care), and more after involvement in a motor vehicle accident.
However, when it comes to motorcycle accidents and the Michigan no-fault
law it can get tricky. This is because under Michigan law a motorcycle
is not considered a “motor vehicle.” In addition because no-fault
insurance benefits typically come from an automobile insurance policy,
in order for an injured motorcyclist to be able to collect no-fault benefits
the motorcycle accident must have involved an automobile, such as a car or truck.
To explain the
Michigan no-fault law and its relation to motorcycle accident injuries,
Senior Partner and Attorney Gerald Acker has recorded this video to help you better understand the law and what
you may be entitled to as a Michigan motorcycle accident victim.
The insurance laws in Michigan regarding motorcycle accidents are very
complex and require the knowledge of an attorney who understands no-fault
law and has significant experience handling motorcycle accident injury
cases. Not all lawyers in Michigan know how to handle these cases, and
for this reason it is important that the attorney you choose to represent
you has significant experience and expertise representing injured motorcyclists
against the insurance companies.
