Grand Rapids Motorcycle Accident Lawyer

If you are involved in an accident with another vehicle while you are riding your motorcycle you will need to file between one and three different insurance claims to pay for your medical bills, the damage to your bike and any additional damages or pain and suffering. Even if you have "full coverage" with your own insurance company, it may still not pay for all your bills and expenses due to the many "exceptions" and optional coverage you may not have chosen to pay for. For help in coping with the various types of claims you need to file after your accident you should speak to a Grand Rapids motorcycle accident attorney at Michigan Biker Law. We can answer all your questions and help you seek the full coverage you both need and deserve.

Motorcycle Accident Attorney in Grand Rapids

Under Michigan's "no-fault" insurance laws if you are injured in an accident caused by another driver your current and future medical bills are paid in the following priority by:

  • The insurer of the owner of the other vehicle
  • The insurer of the operator of the other vehicle
  • The insurer of the owner of the motorcycle involved
  • The insurer of the operator of the motorcycle involved

While your own insurance company will usually pay for repair or replacement of your motorcycle, it normally will not cover additional equipment, accessories or customization you may have installed. If the other driver is uninsured or flees the scene (hit & run) and cannot be found then you can be paid if your own policy includes uninsured motorist coverage or it is possible to file with the state to make your claim. Call us for legal advice or assistance in handling your accident claims.
