Riding a motorcycle can be exhilarating, but unfortunately, motorcyclists face unique risks and dangers every time they ride. Sharing the road with cars and trucks makes riding a motorcycle a risky endeavor no matter how careful the motorcyclist is when riding. Motorcycles are harder to see than motor vehicles, and other drivers often do not look well enough before making turns and lane changes. When a crash with a vehicle does happen, it is often more catastrophic than a multi-vehicle accident because bikers have significantly less protection, even with full gear.

Hazardous conditions of the roads themselves can also create dangers for a motorcyclist, who may lose control due to potholes, uneven surfaces, or debris on the roadway. In 2022, more than 3,000 motorcyclists were involved in collisions in Michigan, and 180 people were killed. More than 93% of motorcycling fatalities were males and the highest number were in the 35-44 age group.

There Is a Difference Between a Motorcycle Accident and a Car Accident

Motorcycle crashes present unique legal challenges. They are treated differently from other vehicles by the No-Fault Act and are generally not required to carry insurance. If a single motorcycle crashes or hits a pedestrian, the at-fault driver may be liable for their negligence. However, a motorcyclist injured in a crash with a car or truck is entitled to benefits from the other driver under the No-Fault Act. There are also complex insurance requirements if the motorcyclist does not wish to wear a helmet. The 2019 amendments to the No-Fault Act changed the law surrounding motorcycles and created some questions about insurance coverage that have not yet been answered. The attorneys at Gruel Mills can help you sort out all of this complex law and help you obtain full and fair compensation for your injuries.
