According to Michigan state laws, if a motorcyclist is involved in a collision
involving another driver, he or she is eligible to receive Michigan no-fault
insurance benefits. Now, one of the most common questions at this point
is: Which person’s insurance will cover those benefits?
To help you understand which person’s insurance will cover the benefits,
our Detroit motorcycle accident lawyers at Goodman Acker P.C. have created
an order of priority list, which can be found below:
- The owner’s auto insurer or the registrant of the vehicle involved
- The driver’s auto insurer of the vehicle involved
- The motorcyclist’s auto insurer
- The motorcycle owner’s insurer
- The Michigan Assigned Claim Facility
What Types of No-Fault Benefits Can A Motorcyclist Obtain?
When a motorcyclist sustains injuries as a result of a collision, the rider
is entitled to receive benefits. Michigan laws state that these benefits
are commonly referred to as no-fault Personal Injury Protection (PIP)
benefits and include the following:
- Monetary compensation needed for the person’s recovery and rehabilitation
- Wage loss compensation for up to a three-year period
- Compensation for any domestic services the injured person is unable to
complete on their own
