A biker who suffers an injury due to a road defect or hazard should contact our Michigan motorcycle accident lawyers as soon as possible after the accident. Under Michigan law, written notice must be provided to the government agency responsible for the maintenance of the road within 120 days of the accident. The failure to provide this notice will forever bar a future lawsuit or claim. It is also important that the road condition be inspected and photographed as soon as possible after the accident and before the road commission repairs the condition. The failure to do this can make suing the road commission more difficult in the future.
