What are my rights if a car side-swiped my bike while riding on a Michigan street?

If you or someone you know was side-swiped by car while riding bike in Michigan, and suffer injuries, you do have legal rights. First, the injured Michigan bicyclist can file a claim against the negligent driver for the injuries suffered in the side-swipe collision.  If the vehicle cannot be identified, the injured bicyclist can often file an uninsured motorist’s claim under his or her own automobile insurance policy.

Second, the injured bicyclist can file a claim for Michigan No-Fault Insurance benefits. This claim can be filed even if the biker did not own a vehicle or have car insurance. No-fault benefits will cover any medical expenses, lost wages, attendant care, replacement services, and other benefits related to injuries suffered in the car side-swipe bicycle accident.
