About the Different Types of Motorcycle Accidents in Michigan

Following are some examples of the potential types of motorcycle accidents that may occur:

  • "I didn't see the motorcycle!" - Unfortunately, this is a frequent cause of motorcycle accidents throughout Michigan. Motorists who are distracted or are otherwise negligent may not check their blind spots or may not look for bikers, therefore causing an accident because they simply did not see the motorcyclist.
  • Rear-end collisions
  • U-turn accidents
  • Left-turn collisions
  • Obstructions on roadways or hazardous roads
  • Accidents caused by defective motorcycle parts
  • Drunk driving motorcycle accidents

In any Michigan motorcycle accident, it will be necessary for your lawyer to investigate the type of accident to determine what caused it to occur. Establishing who caused the accident will mean that you will then be able to bring a claim or lawsuit against the responsible party, whether this is another driver, the manufacturer of a defective motorcycle part, or even the local government or a property owner for improperly maintained roadways.
