I lost my son in a motorcycle accident. I could not get anywhere with the insurance company, so I decided to seek legal help. I was referred to Michigan Auto Law. Jeffrey Bussell, my attorney, has been amazing throughout this entire process. He has gone above and beyond my expectations. I had another issue not related to this incident. Jeff was able to give me a referral to an attorney for that. The referral I received was great as well. I am very pleased with my experience here at Michigan Auto Law!Google

What Insurance is Required for Motorcyclists?

The only insurance required for a Michigan motorcyclist is basic liability coverage for a third-party personal injury suit, under Michigan’s No-Fault law. But there is optional No-Fault coverage for motorcycle owners that a motorcyclist should also strongly consider. 

Motorcycle Insurance Law

Under the Michigan No-Fault Act, a motorcycle is not considered a motor vehicle.  Our attorneys explain what this means and how it relates if you have been injured in an accident.  

No-Fault Insurance

If a rider or passenger is involved in a crash and another motor vehicle is involved, he or she is still entitled to Michigan No-Fault insurance benefits.  Our attorneys explain the No-Fault order of priority for who will cover the insurance benefits for people injured in motorcycle crashes involving motor vehicles.

Motorcycle Crash Types

How much does a Michigan motorcycle accident lawyer cost?

When you’ve been injured in a motorcycle crash, one of your first questions might be: How much does a Michigan motorcycle accident lawyer cost? Many people imagine that hiring a lawyer is expensive and, thus, something they cannot afford. But that’s not the case with Michigan Auto Law. We don’t ask our clients to pay anything out-of-pocket . . . ever. In fact, we will never ask you to pay any fees until we win your case. Our nationally-recognized attorneys work on a contingency fee, so we only get paid if we win your case and get you a settlement for your crash. Our compensation for helping people is paid as a percentage of the settlements we win for our clients. Plus, we extend our 100% client satisfaction guarantee to each and every one of our clients.

What type of lawyer deals with motorcycle accidents?

When you’ve been in a crash, you will want to hire a Michigan motorcycle accident lawyer who has specialized experience in helping injured victims. You will want an attorney who understands how much your case is worth. He or she must be able to prove the harm that you have suffered and must be able to negotiate a settlement for the full value of your claim which will cover present and future medical costs and lost wages as well as loss of future earning capacity and pain and suffering compensation. Without the right attorney, it’s nearly impossible to settle your case for what it’s really worth.  

Insurance companies evaluate claims and determine whether to settle – and if so for how much – based on risk and exposure. An experienced attorney with a track record of proven results, including top reported settlements and verdicts, significantly increases both the risk and the exposure to the insurance company that insures the negligent driver who caused your injury.

Is getting a motorcycle accident lawyer worth it?

Don’t take our word for it. The insurance industry’s own data shows that a person who is represented by an experienced attorney recovers significantly more than a person who is not represented by an attorney. Also, at Michigan Auto Law, you don’t pay unless we win. Our lawyers will handle all aspects of your injury case so you can focus on recovering and trying to put your life back together. We are always here to answer any questions about the case, the process, the law, the insurance company, the adjuster, the judge or anything else. We’re here for you.

How long does a settlement take?

How long does it take to get a settlement? Each case is unique, so it’s a difficult question to answer, but there are several factors that can help answer how long a settlement will take. These include: your injuries, prognosis and current future medical needs; whether you are disabled from working and for how long; whether your injuries have resulted in an impairment that affects your ability to lead your normal life; whether your injuries will require “excess” coverage for medical bills and lost wages; the experience, track record and reputation of your lawyer (attorneys known for going to trial can settle cases for money and often much faster); the at-fault driver’s auto insurance company, adjuster, defense lawyer and liability limits.
