Motorcycle Accident Lawyer in Michigan

While many of us know that riding a motorcycle is one of the most exciting and liberating ways to travel, we also recognize that it is a form of transport that comes with many risks. Looking only at 2018, 192 motorcyclists were killed on Michigan’s roads and more than 2,000 were injured, many of those with severe injuries that will have lifelong effects.

If you have been involved in a Michigan motorcycle accident, then you want to have one of the best law firms in the state fighting your case. Cochran, Kroll & Associates have many years of experience in representing clients in motorcycle accident cases.

How the Law Works

Unlike cars or trucks, Michigan no-fault law does not recognize motorcycles as a motor vehicle. What this means for bikers is that they must hold special minimal coverage motorcycle insurance which covers property damage as well as injury or wrongful death. Motorcyclists can also choose to expand that insurance policy by adding on blocks of $5,000 extra coverage to their policy.

There is also the question of Michigan’s helmet laws. Despite riding helmetless increasing the risk of a traumatic brain injury, Michigan allows riders over the age of 21 to ride without a helmet. However, a condition of that is that any rider who chooses to do so – as well as passengers who do the same – must carry a minimum of $20,000 in medical coverage.

The risk of serious injury as a result of a motorcycle crash is far greater than that of a car accident victim. Brain injuries, broken bones, and spinal cord injuries are commonplace, and these can all lead to high medical bills. With less coverage than a usual no-fault benefits policy, it makes sense to add on those extra blocks if you can. If you have been injured in a motorcycle accident, then you do not want to have to pay medical expenses out of your own pocket if possible. And, where another driver can be shown to be liable, you want to see if you can pursue a claim for any pain and suffering.
