Our bicycle accident lawyers at Buckfire & Buckfire, P.C. have achieved excellent results for bicyclists injured in Michigan bike accidents. The injuries from a bicycle accident are often serious, including traumatic brain injuries and even death. These bike crashes happen on streets, roadway shoulders, parking lots, and even on sidewalks. While many of our clients are competitive bicyclists, many bicyclists are just out for a leisurely bike ride with their family or just to get some exercise on a warm summer night.
There are many reasons that bicycle accidents occur in Michigan and virtually all are caused by inattentive drivers or drivers who simply ignore the rights of bicyclists. Many bike accidents happen when a car or truck simply cuts of a bicycle and forces a crash or causes the biker to fall onto the pavement. Bicyclists simply have no time to prepare or react to these situations to prevent injury or harm to themselves. Some common cut-off type bicycle accidents include:
- Left turning vehicle at an intersection in which the driver does not see a bicyclist lawfully crossing the street
- Right turning automobile traveling ahead of a bicyclist in which the driver does not use the right turn signal and turns abruptly in front of the bicyclist
- Right turning car attempting to overtake a bicyclist or pass the bicyclist
- Opening the driver side door or passenger side door just as the bicyclist is set to pass the vehicle
In all of these scenarios in which a bicyclist is cut off by a car or truck and suffers injuries, the injured biker can file a claim in Michigan for pain and suffering damages. Additionally, in every situation, the injured bicyclist can file a claim for Michigan No-Fault Insurance benefits even if the biker did not own a vehicle or have car insurance. We will assist you in making these claims.
