Injured In a Motorcycle Crash?
Especially in the spring and summer, motorcycles are a common sight on the roads in and around Detroit and throughout Michigan. Unfortunately, bikers are always at risk of being seriously injured in an accident. Even with protective gear, a motorcyclist who is involved in a crash may suffer broken bones, road rash or a head injury. Compared to people riding in cars or trucks, bikers have little protection. That’s why it’s critical to get help from an experienced motorcycle accident lawyer after a crash.
Too many insurance companies think bikers are irresponsible, reckless drivers. They may try to blame you for your injuries. He knows that the men and women who ride are safe, responsible operators, and if you’ve been hurt in a crash due to a motorist’s negligence, he’ll fight for the compensation you deserve.

A motorist turned in front of my bike at an intersection.
Too many drivers don’t understand that a motorcycle is a vehicle and that they need to yield to an oncoming bike just as they would yield to a car. If your bike hit the front or side of a car at an intersection, you may have been seriously injured. Your attorney will interview witnesses and review video footage if available to show that the car failed to yield. Depending on the circumstances, he may retain an accident reconstruction expert to analyze the scene and prove that the driver who hit you was at fault.
My bike was hit from behind by a motorist who was following too closely.
Rear-end collisions caused by motorists can be very dangerous for bikers. Many drivers don’t understand that motorcyclists need to change speeds or change position in their lanes in order to adjust to road conditions. If you were rear-ended and thrown off your bike, your case may seem simple, but the insurance company will do everything in its power to reduce your compensation. That’s why you need an experienced attorney on your side.
I was forced off the road.
No-contact crashes can be difficult cases because there is so little physical evidence showing what happened. Attorneys will interview witnesses and track down other evidence to hold the driver who forced you off the road accountable. If that driver isn’t found, we may be able to help you file an uninsured motorist claim with your own insurance company. You can take control of what happens next.
A distracted driver hit me.
Motorists who drive while texting or otherwise distracted put everyone at risk, but bikers are especially vulnerable. Because motorcycles are smaller than passenger cars, they’re easy for distracted drivers to overlook. If you were rear-ended or otherwise injured by a distracted driver, you have legal rights. Your attorneys will interview witnesses, review cell phone records and find the evidence needed to find the motorist at fault.
I lost a loved one in a head-on collision with a car.
Unfortunately, motorcyclists are some of the most vulnerable people on the road, and they’re too often involved in fatal accidents. No amount of legal action can bring your lost loved one back, but a civil wrongful death lawsuit can help to provide for the people he or she left behind. An attorney would be honored to help your family hold the negligent motorist responsible for the crash. Call today for a free, confidential consultation.
