Yes, you can file a Michigan bicycle accident claim if hit by the side view mirrors of a passing car. Often times, these accidents cause serious injuries, including traumatic brain injuries and even death.
In this situation, the injured bicyclist can file a claim against that driver for the injuries suffered in the accident. If the vehicle cannot be identified, the injured bicyclist can often file an uninsured motorist’s claim under his or her own automobile insurance policy.
In addition to a personal injury claim, the injured bicyclist can file a claim for Michigan No-Fault Insurance benefits. This claim can be filed even if the bicyclist did not own a vehicle or have car insurance.
