Motorcycle Accident Lawyer Files Michigan No-Fault Insurance Lawsuit Against State Farm Insurance Company

Our motorcycle accident lawyers recently filed a 1st Party Michigan No-Fault lawsuit against State Farm for a client in the Wayne County Circuit Court.  The case arises out of a motorcycle versus motor vehicle accident that occurred in Texas Township.  The client was the operator of a motorcycle that struck a motor vehicle that was insured with State Farm. Even though the motorcyclist was at fault for the accident, the insurance carrier for the motor vehicle is legally responsible for the motorcyclist’s’ Michigan No-Fault benefits. Unfortunately State Farm has refused to pay all the benefits. The client suffered severe upper and lower extremity injuries.

Motorcyclists account for 10.5 percent of all car accidents. According to reports done by the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA), 62,000 motorcyclists died due to a car accident between the years of 1975 and 2005. Motorcycles represent only 3 percent of all registered vehicles; however, the number of deaths and injuries due to a motorcyclist hit by car is high.

Victims of motorcyclists hit on motorcycle by car in Michigan can often file a claim for Michigan no-fault insurance benefits, just like our client. In order to receive insurance benefits, the bicycle must be insured with liability coverage. It is not required that the bike have no-fault insurance benefits. Depending on if the motor vehicle was at fault in the motorcycle-car accident, the injured motorcyclist may also have means for a personal injury lawsuit against the negligent driver for the injuries caused due to the motorcycle accident. If the motorcyclist was killed after being hit on motorcycle by car, the family of the deceased may also have means for a Michigan wrongful death lawsuit.
