If you have ever ridden a motorcycle, you will know how free it feels to have the wind on your face as you ride down the highway. But you will also know just how dangerous it is, with risks posed not only from the behavior of car drivers but also the reckless behavior of many motorcyclists. That danger is reflected in the almost 200 fatalities from motorcycle accident cases in Michigan in 2018.
If you have suffered motorcycle accident injuries in the Dearborn area, then you want a law firm fighting your case who has extensive experience of personal injury law and Michigan auto accident cases involving motorcycles.
There were just under 5,000 motorcycle accident fatalities across the United States in 2017. The reality of riding a motorcycle is that you are more likely to suffer severe injuries in a motorcycle accident than in a car accident. And if you, as Michigan law allows if you are over 21, choose to not wear a helmet, then the possibility of traumatic brain injuries is very real indeed.
Motorcyclists do not fall under Michigan’s no-fault insurance laws, though they are required to carry a minimum amount of liability insurance. This type of policy offers only basic coverage for damage to property and injury or death to another party. But bikers can add extra coverage to this policy in blocks of $5,000. And if you are over 21 and think not using a helmet is a good idea, then you need to carry at least $20,000 in medical benefits coverage as do any passengers who also choose not to use a helmet.
