A Warren teenager was seriously injured in a Michigan bicycle accident yesterday while attempting to ride his bike across 9 Mile Road, according to a Detroit Free Press report. He is being treated for serious injuries at Children's Hospital in Detroit after being transferred from Henry Ford Hospital. He apparently has a broken neck.
Police do not believe the driver who struck the teen was at fault for the accident, but they are still investigating. The teen apparently crossed the street against a green light and the driver was going the posted speed limit.
Because it appears that the driver was not at fault, the boy cannot file any type of injury case against him. However, the boy and his family can still make a Michigan No-Fault Insurance claim for important benefits, including medical expenses and attendant care services. Attendant care service benefits can be used to pay family members to assist the teenager and supervise him at home during his recovery period.
