Potential Claims For An Injured Bicyclist Hit On Bike By Car in Michigan

Even if the other driver did not have insurance, but you owned your own automobile which had car insurance, or you were living with a relative had car insurance, you are able to make a claim for no-fault benefits through your automobile insurance company or your relative's automobile insurance company.
If you did not have automobile insurance or you were not living with a relative who did not have automobile insurance, you are able to make a claim for no-fault benefits through the Michigan Assigned Claims Facility. These benefits must be paid for you regardless of fault in the accident.
