Detroit Bicycle Accident Lawyers & Bike Injury Attorneys

Detroit Bicycle Accident LawyerOur Detroit bicycle accident lawyers represent clients who have suffered injuries while riding on a bike in or near the city of Detroit. The accidents often result in very serious injuries and even death. In cases involving the death of a bicyclist, we file a wrongful death lawsuit for the surviving family members.

Detroit Bicycle Trails & Paths

Bicycle accidents happen on all roads, streets, sidewalks, and even in parking lots in Detroit. Many bicyclists enjoy cycling on trails in and around the Detroit area. Some of the best trails in the Metro Detroit area include:

  • Belle Isle Park
  • Kensington Metropark
  • Maybury State Park
  • Rogue Park Trail
  • West Bloomfield Trail

Accidents can happen while riding on a trail and eve while biking to get to the trail. Drivers often disregard the rights of bicyclists or are simply not paying attention, and this can lead to very serious injuries.

Common Causes of Detroit Bicycle Accidents

Most bicycle accidents are caused by negligent and inattentive drivers of cars, trucks and busses. The most common causes of Detroit bicycle accidents are:

  • Drivers failing to stop at red light or stop sign
  • Drivers traveling at excessive speeds
  • Drivers turning in front of moving bicyclist
  • Drivers distracted from texting or cell phone use
  • Drivers ignoring the rights of bicyclists traveling in marked bicycle lanes
  • Motorists opening car doors as a bicyclist is riding by the vehicle
  • Drunk and intoxicated drivers

No-Fault Insurance For A Detroit Bicycle Accident

Every person injured in a Michigan bicycle accident is entitled to receive no-fault insurance benefits, even if the bicyclist did not own a car or have an auto insurance policy. These benefits provide for unlimited lifetime medical expenses, lost wages, attendant care services, household services, and other benefits.

Our lawyers will assist you in filing your claim for no-fault insurance benefits. We will also determine which insurance company is responsible for paying those benefits. If the insurance company denies payment of benefits, we will file a no-fault insurance lawsuit for you.

Personal Injury Claims After a Detroit Bicycle Accident

In addition to receiving no-fault insurance benefits, an injured bicyclist can file a personal injury claim.  These claims seek settlements for pain and suffering, disability, scars and permanent disfigurements, loss of enjoyment of life, and other damages.  The insurance company for the negligent driver typically pays the settlement.

In the tragic event of a fatal bike accident, the surviving family members can file a wrongful death lawsuit.  These lawsuits seek compensation for the pain and suffering of the bicyclist from the time of accident until death, the loss of society and companionship of surviving family members, loss of income and support, medical expenses, and funeral and burial expenses.  Our attorneys will handle all of the required probate court paperwork and file your lawsuit to get your family the highest possible settlement.

Detroit bicycle accidents occur in subdivisions, main streets, bicycle lanes, and even in parking lots. It is important to report the accident to the police so that witnesses can be interviewed and an investigation can be performed to determine the cause of the accident. Once an investigation has been completed, the police report can be obtained from the Detroit Police Department.
