Detroit Personal Injury Lawyers Fighting For The Injured

How Does No-Fault Insurance Work for Motorcyclists in Michigan?

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:

  1. The owner’s auto insurer or the registrant of the vehicle involved
  2. The driver’s auto insurer of the vehicle involved
  3. The motorcyclist’s auto insurer
  4. The motorcycle owner’s insurer
  5. 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
