I read a tragic story about four motorcyclists were injured yesteday in a Tuscola County motorcycle accident . Oakland County residents Cary Misenar and his passenger, Margaret Misenar, were on their Harley when a truck headed the opposite direction on M-46 crossed the center line and struck them.
Another bike driven by Michael Newsome with passenger Becky Hutchings on also overturned while trying to avoid the accident. Both motorcycle drivers and passengers were taken to the hospital for their injuries.
I wish all four injured bikers a fast recovery. The injuries suffered in these accidents are often catastrophic and often seem to be the result of careless motorists who ignore the rights of bikers.
All of the injured bikers may be entitled to Michigan No-Fault Insurance Benefits for payment of medical expenses, lost wages, and other expenses. Their entitlement will depend on a number of factors, including their insurance policies and the specific facts of the accident. They may also have claims for their injuries and pain and suffering against the negligent motorist.
