Motorcyclists injured in an accident often suffer more severe and permanent
injuries due to their vulnerability on the road and lack of protection
of not being enclosed and shielded by metal like automobiles. However,
even though injuries resulting after a motorcycle accident may be more
severe and therefore requiring additional long term medical care and financial
support, motorcyclists will find that Michigan law is very complex when
it comes to bikes. In fact, under Michigan law, motorcycles are not considered
a “motor vehicle.”
When a victim is involved in a motorcycle accident in Michigan, the first
and most important thing you should do to get help is call the police
and get immediate medical assistance. If anyone involved in the incident
seems to be under the influence of alcohol or drugs, when calling the
police it is important you tell the police that when you call for help.
