Understanding Risks and Legal Protection for Michigan Motorcyclists
Are you looking for a Michigan motorcycle accident lawyer?
Motorcycle accidents are often severe because of riders’ lack of protection compared to drivers of enclosed vehicles. Distracted driving is increasing. Activities like texting while driving have increased the risks for motorcycle riders on the road.
Besides distracted drivers, several other factors increase the risk of serious motorcycle accidents. These include reckless or negligent driving, dangerous road conditions, and faulty motorcycle equipment.
Riders must be aware of the motorcycle insurance requirements in Michigan. Also, it's crucial to have proper legal representation in case of an accident.
Understanding Michigan Motorcycle Insurance
The Michigan No-Fault insurance law does not cover motorcycles in Michigan. Because of this, there are important factors that motorcyclists need to understand about Michigan motorcycle insurance and their rights.
- Michigan requires motorcyclists to have only Personal Liability and Property Damage (PLPD) insurance coverage. This protects other persons from the motorcyclist’s negligent acts.
- If a vehicle hits a motorcyclist with PLPD coverage, the motorcyclist will receive Michigan No-Fault insurance benefits. These benefits include medical coverage up to the limit of the truck or car’s policy. If a motorcyclist is hit by an uninsured driver, Michigan arranges No-Fault benefits for them through an insurance company.
- If a negligent car or truck driver injures a motorcyclist, the motorcyclist can seek compensation from the driver or owner, regardless of having PLPD insurance.
Motorcyclists can face criminal penalties if they do not have PLPD insurance. Also, they are unable to sue a negligent driver of an automobile or truck in the event of an accident.
An experienced personal injury attorney can assist riders in understanding their insurance coverage and protect their rights.
