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.
