Yes, you can sue for bicycle accident injuries if you were cut off by a car in Michigan. In this scenario, the bicycle accident injury victim may be able to file a claim in Michigan for pain and suffering damages against the negligent driver.
In addition to filing a personal injury claim, the injured bicyclist can file a claim for Michigan No-Fault Insurance benefits. The bicyclist can do this even if he/she did not own a vehicle or have car insurance.
This no-fault claim can be made against the insurance company for the negligent driver, an auto insurance policy issued to a family member in the same household of the injured bicyclist, or through the Michigan Assigned Claims Facility if there was no other source of insurance. It is very important that the accident victim files an Application for No-Fault Benefits with the proper insurance company so that these benefits are attained.
