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.
Our firm only handles
motorcycle accident cases. We are well aware that motorcyclists are often not treated fairly
when involved in an accident by both law enforcement and insurance adjusters.
We understand the law and know you deserve to have your rights protected
and your injuries and damages paid for by the appropriate insurer. We
know how to work with both your and any other insurance representatives
to get you the financial settlement you are entitled to receive.
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.
