Riding a motorcycle may be a lot of fun but is also very dangerous. With less protection than any other type of vehicle, the potential for a serious injury when involved in a motorcycle accident is much higher than in other motor vehicle accidents. Broken bones, traumatic brain injuries, spinal cord injuries, and fatalities are all more likely when riding motorcycles than driving a car.
If you have been involved in a Flint motorcycle accident, then you need the services of a law firm that regularly handle motorcycle accident cases. They can deal with any disputes with your insurance company over an offered settlement, or they can file a personal injury claim on your behalf.
Although Michigan law requires all users of motor vehicles to carry no-fault insurance, Michigan law does not recognize motorcycles as motor vehicles. Instead, motorcyclists need to take out a minimum liability insurance policy. While this type of policy only offers basic coverage that will cover damage to property and injury or death to another party, you can add extra coverage to this policy in blocks of $5,000. Also, if you are over 21 and decide not to use a helmet, then you need to carry a minimum of $20,000 in medical benefits coverage as do any passengers who also don’t wear a helmet.
If you have been injured in a motorcycle accident in Flint, Michigan, then you need the best legal advice you can obtain. There may be a question of who was liable (the finger is often pointed at motorcyclists), or there may be some question as to the severity of your motorcycle accident injury, but whatever the circumstances are, the law office of Cochran, Kroll & Associates will diligently represent you.
With motorcycle accident victims potentially incurring higher medical bills than a car accident victim, it is crucial that you are not left out of pocket. Where there is probable liability of another party, we will investigate thoroughly so as to be able to present a strong case to an insurance company or court.
